i'd known that, ever since i first set foot on a stage as a child, but it's been a LONG time since then. this past saturday, i had the wonderful opportunity to share my shadow puppet piece on the stage along with some really wonderful, talented, creative puppeteers. and what can i say? i was nervous, excited and had so much fun, all at the same time!! it was a great experience to be able to share my work (and many many thanks to those of you who came out to see my work!! xoxo) but it was equally wonderful to be backstage with all the other performers and to feel everyone's creative energy. i felt so inspired, esp as i got to sit in the audience for the second half of the show. there were so many diverse voices and so many different ways of presenting the work. and then the overall atmosphere was so special - because the puppet theater is rather small, the evening felt very intimate and special. thank you to Puppet Showplace Theater and everyone involved in putting the Slam together!
unfortunately, i was too distracted to take any photos at the Slam - sorry! however, i would like to share some photos of the beautiful spring we have been having here in Boston. trees are exploding with flowers everywhere! it's hard to believe we had so much snow not that long ago.
