One Moment of Glory

Hello world. Yep, I’m in the party room too. And I just want to tell you that during tonight’s show there was one cue which made the whole night ( actually the whole day) satisfying while wearing my stage manager hat. It has been a while since I wore a stage manager hat – and I had forgotten the satisfaction of calling a cue in EXACTLY the right spot. Calling it in a spot where it changes from being just a lighting cue to being a moment which contributes to the performance in a way which makes the show bigger than the sum of its parts. Comments on what made the day worthwhile as a Producer will come later …now …more kareoke and soju…5am – airport transfer pick up!

Party Room

Posted by Metadance09, August 30th, 2009

After a huge show with an audience of 1000 people, we have moved on to more Karaoke in the ‘Party Room’ of our hotel.

We are drinking soju (very strong Korean Vodka of sorts) so good luck to us.

There is a video to come that is of Dragon (Co Director of the Chung Mu festival) doing Korean Karaoke.

Over and out.

In 5 minutes I’ll try and give you a Korea update. SO we are about to start our final day in Korea and looking forward to performing in the HUge theater!! Slightly uneven floor so will be an extra challenge…bring it on! Daejong was long days and slow pace but all went well and we had a karoke party to top it off. the four dancers have been struggling to find food to suit us and we were lucky in daejong to find a tofu restaurant where you sit on the floor around a table and feast on mounds of slightly grilled tofu and vegies just what the meta girls were after. Josh has been struggling slightly that was until yesterday when we found a western restaurant that served steak!! so we are running on steak now so the show should be brilliant. Off to breakfast so got to sign off…. Metalove, SALLY

It has been a long day in tourland.  We have been home at the Hotel Chamonix 2 hours but the adreneline of Mission Impossible is only just wearing off enabling the prospect of sleep glorious sleep.

So here are a few of our small but important  triumphs to keep you going in the absence of all coherent words :)

1. 10kgs of overweight baggage for the cost of a few stern words on doing better next time we check in.
