Today marked the first rehearsal of this next phase of our development process. I am enjoying our conversations, the way we’re pawing and tearing at the edges of our respective fields e.g. theatre, opera, lighting design, playwriting.
Director Gary Merry in the East London evening sunshine, picking out the strands in the new ballad, written by Kim Ashton, as Kim leads the rehearsal with Sean Patterson and me.
At the piano at People Show Studios, my favourite place to rehearse in London.
Kim’s t-shirt is one from a tour his college made of South East Asia, I believe. Kim “Shave It Off” Ashton and “Philippa “Jungle Strength” Boyle are names on his t-shirt. Phili is our lovely soprano and we get to play with her soon.
A line in Kim Ashton’s ballad reminds me of a song, My Kz, Ur Boyfriend, by Everything Everything.
