Ohhhhhhhhhh Kunikooooooooohhhh, what a lovely compliment i found this morning - that makes my day happy!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you very much! what you said is a treasure in my heart, since i trust and know your opinion!!! Thank you so much!
Yes, i get the informations from Karen, BUT: usually i got them too late and had taken some gigs for that time. Actually i liked very much when Karen and Lee were teaching together! I need to arrange it somehow......now i have to take off for 2 shows in ethnology-museum, coyotestories in the north american departement. Tomorrow will be premiere of the new puppet-theater-show i was directing. I am satisfied with it and now it´s up to the puppeteer to keep it alive. And i will have more time for movement in the next months, since there are no rehearsals with him. Though i guess he is already planing the next .....it´s still nice and warm here and i can pick figues from the tree in my garden. You are welcome anytime!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dear Kuniko, that sounds like a wonderful plan: meeting at the Barn........i try to find out when Karen is teaching and try keeping those weeks free of appointement. It´s a little difficult, since our summerholidays here start end of july and june + july there are many festivals and happenings. But I´ll try since it´s really getting time to come back and meet you friends who have inspired and are inspiring me!!!! I really would like to see your new stories! Lots of love to you from Uschi
So you are in the Barn from time to time? In Karen´s workshops? I have now more performances, so it´s getting hard to leave. I need to organize things and keep weeks free.....i really wanted to come back for the Push-workshop with Karen & Lee. I loved them teaching together.
From time to time I think of visiting you, having time to build new masks and learn more Origami from you. I hope, one day it will happen!
I was working a lot on new stories, have now a show with native american indian stories (Coyote stories) - this one i also perform in english and bi-lingual , one is a trip through africa, the east-asian story-ghost and the newest is a collection from Siberia and Mongolia. I made it for a spectacular exhibition about "shamanism in Siberia " in the anthropology museum where I perform regularly. Last summer I did some research in Mongolia for that show. Learnt throat-singing. Since I went on with the Roy Hart Voicetraining i do use more singing and voice in my stories.
And last not least I am working on a show with a wonderful chinese musician, with stories from the eastern tealands or the silkroad ( not sure about the title, yet ).
Since 3 years I cooperate with a puppet-theater, they help me with promotion, i help them directing. September will be premiere of Leo Lionni´s "Fish is fish"
Ha, and in 2 weeks I will take a workshop of a very good mask-compagnie (www.familie-floez.de) i am looking forward to be back to the masks........how many years did I catch up now???? talk to you soon. Uschi
