In at the navel and up to the heart!

Last night's 'A-Live' was great!!

We spent a lot of time working on mirroring other people, and, at one point we were going around the room in pairs alongside one another, and talking one word each at a time to other pairs... Had some bizarre conversations about off eggs and whatnot... Then we continued going around in pairs and talking at the same time...speech slowed down so we were instinctively saying the same words as our partner, and having conversations with other pairs doing the same... "IIIII feeeeeeeeeel stttttrrrraaaaaaange!" etc...

Worked on mirrored scenes happening on opposite sides of the stage, and then sat and formulated some ideas... Contrapuntal conversations running across several bar tables...talking over the heads of the audience with some actors amongst them, some on the stage...theatre of cruelty and other such things...

Went to work at 10pm, mindless typing all the way through till 3:30am when I went to the office and sat doing duty obs until 6am. Got a lift home with Dawn.

Sleep : 7am to 11:45am... Dad then collected me and took me to theatre...

Worked the 'Object Box' this afternoon...random objects, discovering innovative things to do with them... A black umbrella became me being a crow, a wooden board became an island that we all three fought to stand on... A green ostrich feather became undergrowth from which Nick ran roaring... An old telephone became a goats head as I crawled along the floor bleating... That sort of thing...

Went to the bank, they said no to an overdraft increase and/or loan... Went to the bus station, then the train station... Got a train ticket to Whitby : faster and cheaper...

Brain in 'train track rhythm'; ('diddledy dee, diddledy dee, diddledy diddledy diddledy dee') which was a game we played at theatre last night, standing in a circle and going round, word each at a time...

...and I came up with a new poem as I walked along with that rhythm in my head!!

The Stabcurdle Song

As I went walking along through the park
I spied a young lady alone in the dark

She nodded at me as I passed by her way
'Twas an icy-cold evening, not late into May.

Perhaps she was lonely, perhaps she was lost;
So I stopped. Doubled back.
Black boots crunching on frost.

"Twistiguts stabcurdle
Rend her apart!
In at the navel
And up to the heart!"

So taking my arm we walked on through the dark
Until she was safely led out of the park.

Well many a lady I walk on my arm,
But honestly, Copper, I do them no harm.

And that's where I left her on that chilly night;
A corner. A street-lamp.
Alone in the light.

"Twistiguts stabcurdle
Rend her apart!
In at the navel
And up to the heart!"

..................................

Now I'm a bit knackered, cup of tea, cup of tea....might go back to bed for a couple of hours snoozle this evening before work as I have a VERY busy day tommorrow!!!
