And… another Dusty Shoes showing!

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, you have another chance to experience Dusty Shoes this Saturday night, September 12th at 8pm!

And, “Madame Rouge” and me have another opportunity to have fun with you. Saturday’s show will also offer you an opportunity to ask me questions during a talk back post show. We can discuss the actor/writer process, the content of the show, the duality of two languages (there is a gentle amount of French in the piece) or even talk about your own reactions during certain key moments during the show.

As a performing artist, I depend on audiences to complete my creative process. Without you, my art lies dormant. You are key. You are the reason I’m there.

Want to join me in a theatrical conversation that will definitely engage you? And, who knows… maybe you’ll be the one who receives a chocolate from Madame Rouge during the show!

Vive le theatre!

Dusty Shoes… still around!

And….. scene!

Dusty Shoes has had three shows in Prince Edward Island. Two at the Carrefour Theatre in Charlottetown, and one at the Kings Playhouse in Georgetown just last Saturday night.

We’ve had some excellent feedback and also some mixed feedback. I expected the mixed (“It wasn’t what I expected”) and always appreciate that there are still many people who “get” this strange show that presents itself like an abstract painting that pushes buttons.

My goal remains solid that people should be entertained but thinking about their own lives as they leave the theatre. Some of the delayed feedback I’m receiving shows me that I’m reaching people who are ready to make changes in their lives.

Doing Dusty Shoes at this time of my life has become even more significant to me than I expected! Having just lost my father in May, then a big personal relationship change on top of it is pushing my OWN buttons. Life, the non-linear voyage of stories.

Saturday September 12th, there is another chance to see Dusty Shoes at the Carrefour Theatre in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. This evening there will be a talk back where you will have an opportunity to ask questions to me, the actor/writer, about the creative process I undertook or about the content of the piece.

Hope to see you there…. and if not there, maybe in a town near you sometime soon! (Dusty Shoes is “bookable”)

Hat Juggling…

Which hat am I wearing currently? That is the question I am most posing myself these days.

I actually love wearing hats, and at one point in my lifeĀ  was a hat maker (milliner), but that’s another story!

These days, however, I’m juggling the producer hat, the marketer hat, the social media “expert” hat, the fundraiser hat, the graphic artist hat, the writer hat, the actor hat, and all the other “normal” life hats. Okay… maybe those … Continue reading Hat Juggling…

I’m sceeeered (scared)

Hi.

Here I am… Ready to launch a blog on my newest, scariest venture yet.

I’m going to blog about my journey with creating my first one woman show that will have to be ready for performance July 10 for the Regina Fringe Festival. From there, I will go to the Edmonton Fringe – August 15-25.

I will blog about my comings and goings. You can read them, or not. But it will be good for me! My play is called Dusty Shoes and it’s about an inner voice getting pissed at a woman who isn’t following her heart. The woman “crashes” and realizes if she doesn’t listen to her inner voice and follow her calling she won’t heal. The inner voice is a unique bouffon.

It’s about me.

That is all for now. Let the journal begin!
