I have three jobs at the moment. I have often thought you can’t serve two masters but now I think you can serve three mistresses.
Since I last wrote I have been working on writing towards a publication about The House with Jenny Hughes which will come out next January in a journal called Studies in Theatre and Performance. I have also been teaching my lovely Man Uni students who are now preparing for their devising assessment in May. There are three interesting works incubating at the moment which will see daylight on May 9 in the John Thaw Studio, Manchester.
Also I have been planning a residential course on devising for Heron Corn Mill in Cumbria that will take place between August and September this year as well as continuing with the performance research work there on Women of Beetham (and the surrounding area). The course details will be posted here soon.
Then I have also been really busy wracking my brains about Albert, the Tank Tram a lovely clown project I am really happy to be working on with Richard Talbot and his students and colleagues from Salford University together with collaborators from the Tram Museum in Heaton Park, Salford Museum and Wigan Museum. We will be sharing a work in progress on June 1 at Media City. The project culminates In November later this year.
It’s all okay so far.
