This is Yumi, my Butoh teacher. Ive been doing her classes for Eight Years now. Apon arrival at class i smile and say in cheerfull way " Hi Yumi Chan!". In my mind im saying "oh Jeez we're in for a torturous one". She gives examples of a particular exercise and makes it look SOO easy. I 'rekon she does secret ninja training.
This is the first picture taken on my new digital camera! Ill call it "My dirty sneakers". So beings a new era on the Pyewacket blog. I had a great Birthday, and treated myself accordingly. My Shipwreak pay came on the day so i ran around spending what i had. Ok, time for a a hypno session!
Ive been on the beach all weekend out in busy St Kilda, looking after a cool Shipwrek sculpture made by a friend Cory and a bunch of builders and designers. I had the job , with another person, to greet the public, tell them some history and keep an eye on a million and one kids, who swung on the ropes. A Long weekend! It was fantastic being involved. I felt like a real pirate half the time. I now have a sun-burnt face, but money in the bank! . This painting is the St Kilda roadside and is exactly what its like.
Today Ive been looking at buying a few things on my 'for performance' list. One of the items i MUST have is this old fashion microphone.For a couple of hundred bucks, stand included. It would look great center stage! I also NEED a t-shirt I saw with the chemical structure of Mescaline on it . Ive got to have That, to advertise what im into! And...should i mention the Commonwealth Games?
butoh Today i was exploring getting into the MOST uncomfortable position, with my body, I could think of. I came up with a kind of backward roll and then balancing on the tips of my fingers then trying to drag myself along. It was torture. I wept with frustration. i now sit, many hours later, in front of the computer, wounded , sore and with broken fingers.
Ive just spent the weekend in Tasmania ,staying with my Uncle and Aunt.I had a hole filled by my Uncle Charles the Dentist and my energy fixed up by Auntie Ishjer the Homeopathic doctor.WE drove from one end of the island to the other. A very wholsome trip all round. I return highly charged and in positive spirits for school tomorrow.I recomend anyone go and have a holiday with cool long lost family, and the tourist to look up 'Tassie'.
It was University Orintation day today. It was the filling out of forms, recieving timetables and a showing around. Memories of all those 'first days of some strange school', ive had, in my life time. I saw the theater. Ive decided im going to spend all my time in it. Its a black box with raised seating, a lighting rig all set up, hidden speakers, and a non descript floor. In full light it looks 'sporty', or like some b&D 'arena'.The stage! Ah the stage! Its a fine art dancefloor, a time machine. Funky vid here Tarot here
