I’ve been relatively quiet since I’ve been back from NZ, theatrically.
I’ve certainly been posting more about Polyglots and books than my own productions.
This hasn’t been a dry spell so much as a period of planning and incubation. Aside from the epic trilingual feat that is Te Rōhi, the influx of drama teaching gigs which marks the beginning of the school term, and a seemingly endless stream of funding/support applications, this has been a time of reflection and re-imagining for me.
The exciting news is that I’m re-launching my company Super Paua, with significant changes to vision, operations, and brand (that website linked above is on the way out, also, so watch this space for news of it’s successor).
In the first of several up-coming announcements about my work, and the work of the soon-to-be-re-branded Super Paua, I’m delighted to announce that my new play The Lonsdale Project has been chosen for development by Baboró International Festival for Children, Galway, as part of their Pathways To Production scheme.
This means that the Super Paua team get production support, including get mentoring, consultancy, in-kind resources, and cash-kind resources to develop a new show on the life and scientific work of Kathleen Lonsdale – the Irish-born badass vegan prison-reforming Quaker chemist. Expect deadly AV, lasers, whirling symmetry, humour, and hexamethylbenzene.
More information about this will be dripping into the feed, but for – I’m delighted to be involved in such a cool development process with Baboró, and I want to thank them for being so incredibly supportive of this daring, interdisciplinary adventure!
