Dusty Shoes is a one woman show that is being created by me, Trilby Jeeves. I’ve never done this before. So I thought I’d blog about it.
“The one woman show must go on, even without the woman. Enter alter ego, Madame Rouge, an hors d’oeuvre who excuses, eulogizes, ridicules and provokes the woman. Will the woman emerge, go beyond her disability and be reminded to listen to her inner voice, even if it’s wearing motorcycle boots?”
The premiere of Dusty Shoes will first take place at the Regina Fringe Festival, in Regina, Saskatchewan, on July 10-15, 2013, and then from August 15-25, 3013 at the Edmonton Fringe Festival in Edmonton, Alberta.
Having studied at Le Conservatoire d’Art Dramatique in Quebec City as the only ever English person, I have wanted to brave my own solo show for many years. A back operation and a new disability motivated me to tap into my French training and do it! Le Bouffon is helpful to my process (merci Marc Dore et Jaques LeCoq) and the final presentation. With director and corporeal mime professional, Dean Fogal, we are pursuing the idea of crossing cultural boundaries with movement and language. This is the beginning of a journey of performance and story development.
I have done a lot of theatre, written a lot of poems and in the last couple of years several blog posts. You can read my other work here:

But, here, I will just write about my adventure, with all its ups and downs… Thanks for coming by!
