We’re bubbling with ideas as we conceptualise the first phase of the ArtsBridge piece.

ArtsBridge is a collaboration with ‘Wings Theatre Company’ in the States and is the creative wing of Quest Visual Theatre. In November we will present a short, 5-day run of the piece at the Intimate Theatre. This piece then goes to Washington D.C. early next year, where it will be developed further, in collaboration with ‘Wings’ for the Quest Fest in February before bringing back to the National Arts Festival at the end of June and beginning of July.

In honour of this very exciting conceptual phase, here are some of the crazy things we’ve come across.

  • I had a project manager go to italy with a company camera to record progress and got a porno back interspersed with pictures of the building. And he paid for the girlfriend to fly from the UK on his expense account, cheeky f@cker.  And I fired a guy unknowingly on his birthday, I’m on a roll. 
  •  oh, wibs you mean when you taught me to play the trombone? *fond mamaries*

Tanya keeps an eye out on all things relevant to Deaf and theatre on her Google account. The link between the Deaf and theatre and zombies is a rare but awesome find. These guys are raising funds for the Michigan School for the Deaf.
