This is a randomly updated attempt at a Blog. Hey I may actually get into this. Reminds me of journal writing (which I have done since I was seven) 'cept you get to put up photos and be cheeky.

In residence at the International Storytelling Center
Just back from a wonderful time in residence at the International Storytelling Center. http://www.storytellingcenter.net/
Five of my best performances in repertory! Whew!! I call it the
Storytelling Olympics! The Center has a sweet cottage for the tellers to
stay in and a tradition is to leave some goodies behind! So I got to
sample microwave popcorn for the first time - bravely sallying on past
warning labels for a late night snack - and washed up with Goat's milk
and lavender soap! We tellers really do encompass quite a range!! I
loved trying to figure out who left what!!! I left my favorite new pasta
sauce: Rao's Tomato and Basil and a Sam Adam's Beer from my home town
I guess you could say that I am an eclectic artist. I could never decide whether to go into visual arts or theatre so perhaps it is no surprise that my work ends up being in image-based performance. Whether it is storytelling where the image is suspended on words and breath or alternative theatre which is non-narrative and works with the juxtaposition of images, I am fascinated with the realm of the IMAGination...
