Rehearsal Journal - KTP

Wednesday 6th March 2013
"Spending though provoking, discovery and creative time with the Madams who are Zena Edwards and Cherrelle Skeete and the Monsieur who is Sean Graham.........AHhhhhh (pronounced as if you have just sat down on the sofa wiv a nice cuppa) 

Exploring these ideas further, beginning to translate them into languages of spoken word and movement, investigating and questioning options of narrative, emotion and character and pondering creative choices with said artists..........NnnnnN (pronounced as if you were offered toasted tea cakes over crumpets with your cuppa, and you're not sure you agree but feel it would be rude to 'just' disagree)

Showtime arriving almost abruptly, pieces mostly at first draft-with a few tweaks and reworks here and some cutting, splicing and editing there. Going up with a strong scratch/work in progress thats really positively received and accomplishing powerful praise and encouraging feedback from a modest audience yet us peoples here knowing well full that more time money and support would REALLY have allowed this evening of work to stand up and be counted...........GgrrrrrrRRrr (pronounced as if the tea is 'Happy Shopper' and now stewed, the toasted tea cakes are cold and 'undertoasted', and the butter is tastless unsalted marg full of hydrogenated-'undisclosed' fats)



To be continued..."

Packing away the Transformation Tree

It was the last day of the Fury porjecy tree and before packing it down I had to hug it. It had been a taxing process but so invigorating and thought provoking, as so many people had left a imprint on the tree, sharing their stories, binding and then adding thier energy to the vines of the tree. 
Cherrelle and I ate a slap up Thai meal to celebrate. We sent Katie pictures of our food, and cyber High Fived her by text, while she choreographed  in sub zero conditions for the Russian Winter Games.  
And so The Fury Project get taste of what it feel like to be a concrete piece of visual art with film and stroy telling at a button from The Fury Transformation Jukebox.However, this is not the end of the project, nor the the final exhibiting and performance of the Tree. There is more to come. Watch this space. Zena 

Bonding 'n' Binding Sessions Continued - Evolutions

So we have been a-binding at Kings College as part of the Urban Dialogues Art installation commission we won from 3 Faiths forum. Some lovely little creations have been coming forth as we talk and connect about out experiences of anger as women.
The plan is to make an installation of an impression of a tree made from fabric and thread that houses  The Transforming Fury Jukebox loaded with 101 stories of people talking about their relationship with and perceptions of anger.  Right now, we are at the vine making stage.

What's been amazing about this work (fun) is  the confirmation that the installation is not about the tree and the vines intend to build as the finished piece; the installation IS the process, the act of making and sharing  these moments.

We've had open sessions for others to come and join us. Andrea came and did some binding while sharing a story about her disabled sister, who suffers from sickle cell  anemia being discriminated against and talked badly of at a …
