Derby Street Shows
Exciting summer ahead having been asked by Derby City Council to help programme and compere and perform on the second saturday of every month in Derby Town Centre. What they are trying to do is get an exciting feel in Derby town centre something akin to Covent Garden with Circus and street shows. There'll be a small stage by the waterfall and general fun, frivolity and silliness.
The Wedding Season begins..
Been ages now since my last blog but here we are now at the start of another season. Did my first wedding of the year on Saturday up in the Rainy peaks. Fortunately the gods were smiling on us and the rain held off perfectly for the duration of the show and then started hooning it down as soon as I'd finished. I think the happy couple are blessed!
Anyroad, the show has been tweaked over the winter now so that the 'Ritual' is now perfectly tailored to celebrate the nuptials of the lucky couple and Juan Carlos has developed a number of practices/procedures to ensure the happy couple are forever full of passion and love for the rest of their marriage. All with their tongues firmly in their cheeks the audience absolutely loved it and got right behind Juan Carlos' ceremony with a twist!!
Also been loving the new equipment that was purchased just recently. Spanking new unicycle is amazing!
With barbecue season now in full swing things have really started to heat up. Projects with a number of local organisations are in the pipeline specifically looking to engage youngsters in something that they can succeed at and that is fun and energetic.
Also there is an exciting opportunity to take part in Mintfest in Cumbria working with other performers and trying to take the show to the next level. Once that is done then Feste in Derby should be showcasing what has been learnt during the two weeks of practice and performance. Exciting Stuff!
Also looking to be working with Catalan performance collective Sarruga, when they come over for Feste. So loads in the offing and looking forward to getting into it all.
