Katie Pearl is amazing. We turned my mess of ideas and ideas and scraps of performance and its and bits of one liners into this…
What is it?
It’s an outline for my show. And it gives me so much clarity. it looks like some kind of unibomber manifesto with all these post-its pinned everywhere, stray ideas on little squares of paper tucked under this and that. Especially when pinned up in the walls of this small shed that I am currently typing madly away in. But it’s the clearest picture I have of what has been a mess of a show to create.
It’s great. We’ve found ways to combine knitting, psych pamphlets, burlesque and my family’s anonymity within the scope of the whole show.
It was great to be buzzing around with ideas and energy. To really be cooking. It was this intensity so deep that I needed to get up and pee but felt literally like my ideas might “spill” out of me if I moved too far from the table.
So after we made the outline, what did I do?
I went to her apartment and watched Project Runway and crocheted this…
It’s a long long ass scarf. (Bring my show to your city and I’ll make you one or give you this one! Promise. I’m the queen of crafted bribes.)
But yay, finally I’m cooking. My job is to stay focused and really be true to myself in making this show. I’m trying to keep it Wong.
