Catching up…

Today I am finally finally finally catching up on some rewards to the fabulous Kickstarter backers for A head of time!

I also moseyed into the Silver Streak trailer sitting under the Doug fir in the yard at PWNW and spent a few pensive moments in deep regard of the piles of blankets: plaids, solids, stripes, prints, quilts; poly, wool, cotton and mystery fabrics; deep saturated colors, classic neutrals, pastels, and neon.

What to do?Sell some of the good ones to raise $$ for other PWNW activities like the upcoming A.I.R. program? Give a bunch to shelters when the cold weather starts? Maybe so. As much as we wanted, still want, a chance to do A head of time again, it seems unlikely. Other things brewing….

For the sake of completion and closure, I will post some performance video soon. In the meantime here are links to reviews and a few choice photos by Chelsea Petrakis:

  • performed a series of solos every Sunday in July: (except for the 17th, a day devoted to celebrating the life of my sister Kathy). A Month of (5) Sundays

Kathy’s phrase

Today I named a movement phrase I introduced to the dancers this past week.  It is the first material made after my sister’s memorial service: “Kathy’s Phrase.”
