Week 10: Acrobatics presentation: Acrobalance group piece, using iconic buildings in London as a basis. Stage-combat piece (Ours was set at Wimbledon!) and solo Korean martial arts form.
Week 11: 20 movements presentation, all manner of mime.
Week 12: Personal Project presentation, very personal, and I even sang!
Week 13: Research Project Presentation, based on London Cemeteries, the funeral business, the decaying process and grief. And there was a song!
I've learned so much from the experience, and I feel very lucky to have the financial means (just about) to return in January for the advanced course.
When LISPA ended LISPA_FEST began! A few of us from the course went up to Yorkshire to stay on a farm. Which was tremendous, and rather wild! The week ended with my performing at The Wet Spot in Leeds - always a favourite - and this one was particularly special as both Leggy Pee and myself were performing acts with puppets, and all of the regulars who sit at the front every month had brought in minature versions of themselves! I was very nervous while performing the Amelia act, but the Crossroads act went down a storm, I don't think I've ever had such a big reaction to it. It took a while to get rid of the glitter, and I still find the odd speck!
I'm trying to get the Amelia act out as much as possible, so as to overcome my nerves! So I've got Cheese and Crackers on September 5th, and Miss Odelia's Opium Den on September 21st.
That's all for now, I promise not to leave it so long next time!
