Well, the hunt for the perfect Swoop HQ has turned into an epic journey. Dreams of having the space open for the Easter holidays have been put to death for our sins (not submitting our tax on time) but will hopefully be resurrected...even if only for the sake of metaphorical continuity ;-)
Basically, as we all know, tax sucks! But once this mahoooosive tax bill is out of the way, there should be nothing stopping us from finally opening our own space.
In other news, I'm pumped to be booked into a course with Circus Training Australia in July. This means better quality programming and even more skills from Swoop in the future.
Also, don't miss our new monthly spotlights on the Swoop Facebook page, starting next month with Antonin Artaud April. Every month will focus on a different physical theatre practitioner, style or company, organised alliteratively of course because I'm OCD;
Artaud in April
Meyerhold in May
Jacques (Lecoq) in June
Jerzy in July
Anne (Bogart) in August
Suzuki in September
Oida (Yoshi) in October
Noh in November
Decroux in December
Hopefully these studies will not only give you guys a stronger background in physical theatre, but also add to my knowledge as I search for hidden gems of info on the history of this incredible art form.
Wishing everyone an eggcellent easter (sorry, no original jokes in the vault),
