Just Plug Me In...

Weird Cabaret last night was damned hard work, but we now have all three sequences mapped out successfully.

I'm not going to run through what happens in each sequence; I'll post an expounded running order and evaluation after the show on the 14th, however I'll give you some brief 'highlights' here...

Ok...

The Madness of Love - Andy freeform-speedtalking about love, then a chanteuse (possibly me for one of the shows - don't know) singing 'And I Love You So'...which descends into a declaration of 'I love you/I hate you' with opposing gestures (i.e. I love you = slap, I hate you = kiss) and then continuing the song with self-mutilation : red pen...at which point the chanteuse screams and the Dada Duchess makes a paint mark to represent it on the wall...which moves into a 'paint mark choir' with all of us 'singing' the marks she puts up...

The Layers of an Onion - this stemmed from a suggestion I had that the layers of a person were akin to the layers of an onion or could be illustrated as such - and the 'Me, Myself and I' piece that Shakira, Elodie and I worked on...

"I love myself...I'm a loud, sexy creative person...I care too much about other people and not enough about myself...I deliberately don't give a shit sometimes as a self-defence mechanism...I analyse people/myself/actions too much...I'm scared and afraid that noone loves me...I'm desperate to be liked...I just want to crawl into a hole and not ever be found again"

(Yes, I'm an extroverted introvert lol!)

Only, in this instance, we will be making these statements and eating a layer of raw onion each time we say something...so that in the end we are crying, with tears streaming...

Not sure if I want to do this...it's not because I have to be open and self-critical...it's because I don't like raw onion...and I have to wear sunglasses when I cut it as my eyes sting like a bitch lol!

Songs - 'They're Coming To Take Me Away, Ha Ha' (thanks be to serpentbearer for planting that seed)...but we've given it a contrasting blues/maniac melody...and 'Barnes and Barnes'' : 'Fishheads' (wheee!!! research queen!!)...

And the Herr Professor raises his ugly head again for A Madness Lecture...

"Ladies und Gentlemen, I bring you 'Madness'"
...........

Worked on all sequences till 9pm, when I had to go to work. I now have rehearsal calls on Saturday 10am - 5pm and Sunday 11am - 4pm for a vocal rehearsal...

Got to work and discovered that I can't have Friday 22nd April off at all...but I can have Monday the 25th...sucks, as that means I will be at work till either 3:30am or 6am on Saturday morning, and then travel up to Whitby (with no sleep) immediately after that...

This also means that I'll have to get the train, as I expect any potential lift will have travelled up on the Friday evening...aaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!! So I won't get to Whitby until early afternoon on Saturday most likely.

*grumble*

Ho hum. I'll just have to make the most of my limited time there...and at least I won't be due back in work until 10pm Tuesday, so maybe I'll just stay longer to make up for it...

Oh, and I might be competing in the regional First Aid competition with a team from the MDEC at the end of May (I'm a qualified St.John's Ambulance First Aid for Work person). We might be going to somewhere in Notts for a hotel weekend and 'scenarios'... I'll be expecting someone to fall dead at dinner lolol!!

Off for Perception of Self Theology 101 at 6pm...that's 'A-Live' btw lol!! No doubt there will be more philosophical debate tonight, and I'll post a review of the evening tommorrow...

Need Coffee!!!
