I went to an acting conference yesterday and was reminded why I am someone who can run the theatre house but cannot be on stage. The primary workshop was with Javier Cordona, a theatre scholar associated with Theatre of the Oppressed. While not TotO-specific, the workshop totally stretched me, making me uncomfortable at times but giving me insight into performance and the work needed to do acting work. The primary reason for going was to help me think of how to help the kiddos I'm working with in terms of their acting. Insight. Now to think about what to do with it.
A little linky love before I head off to get work done:
In the Czech Republic, they've found the remains of a male who was buried surrounded by domestic goods. Of course he must be gay. The oldest gay ever. Bury me with my knitting needles, please...
In preparation for teaching children's literature this summer, I came across this on NPR: children's literature or another genre entirely?
With data collection in full swing, I'm trying to stay focused on the task at hand and not borrow trouble about the job market.
Lastly: How to steal like an artist. Brilliant.
Happy Sunday, y'all.
