bo shibari

Today was working with Gala mostly. It’s almost 1am and I am a little bleary-eyed and wondering if dinner, shower, a bit of reading is possible or if I should just go to bed now. We tried Bo Shibari, firstly ransacking the 6th floor for any poles resembling lengths of bamboo, then trying to weave them into her ropes to make something more involved. I’m not sure if the idea will make it any further, as both time to develop it and time to do it in performance are both limited, but it has a beauty we haven’t touched on before.

Which is what I’m enjoying most in rehearsals, all this playing with ideas. Tomorrow we are in the theatre proper. Much rumbling and so on emerging from there … excitement.
