I arrived in Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday, after a 12 hour flight with Qantas and a one hour flight with South West Airlines. Essentially, I am here with my theatre company, Thunder’s Mouth Theatre, to perform my show The Fall of June Bloom (or What You Will) for the Phoenix Fringe Festival, however there are some other fringe benefits to this trip as well. (This Fringe has a Fringe!)
For one thing, we are performing first at Estrella Mountain Community College, as part of the Arizona Women’s History Month celebrations. We haven’t been mentioned on the website, I’ll get that attended to asap! Our show takes place at 10.00 am on Thursday 24th March, in the Plaza Gallery, just before the EMCC Women’s Leadership Luncheon, which I am also attending.
Before that, though, I will be providing a workshop for graduate MFA students at Arizona State University, Tempe Campus, on Voice and the Archetypes, a full day of intensive training from 10 am to 5 pm (lunch included). It’s pretty well booked up, but we might be able to squeeze a couple more enthusiastic actors in, if you speak very nicely to Associate Professor Espinosa!
