French toast today with mitch! We’d planned on doing this in sweden in 2011, so was good to finally have a good sit down :)
Im in Sydney atm. Msg me if ud like to chill w some french toast sometime soon!
I can’t afford sunscreen, but I need sunscreen. I’ve needed it for a long time, but it hasn’t been a luxury I could afford.. Much like new underwear, condoms or anything else useful…. I do buy film for this camera - but I would actually kill myself if I couldn’t.
So.. It is nice, being able to walk around taking photos without burning. Also 50+ - it’s a thing now in Aus.. What does that mean?
Full length video of my Circus work, Blindscape.
As it is half sensory experience, it doesn’t translate to video very well.. But you get the idea - Immersion, acrobatics and play!
Immersive theatre experiences. From the perspective of presidium arch theatre we might say that a smaller audience produces a more intimate experience. We transfer that knowledge over the Immersive Theatre and expect it to be the same, but its not. These rules don’t apply to immersive theatre. I think they might even be opposite, with larger amounts of perceived participants intensifying the personal experience of an event. Raises some questions around spectacle..
Just having a think at the cafe. There is often an importance on making an personal experience, something people relate to on a deeper level. So smaller audiences have always made sense. But maybe it’s not the point. When you are engage single people within a group they will all feel more involved when there are more people around. It ramps up the perceived wealth of experience as well as a shell around the personal experience.
Also, everything is immersive so what I’ve said here is fundamentally flawed.. yet..
Hmm.. For a while I assumed I was 18, because I started circus when I was 10..
Just then I had a chat with mum on the phone and she thinks I started when I was 8.. I 28 years human this year - making me 20 in circus years.
Suddenly I feel all grown up..!
Bought steal caps today for work setting up tents for Circus Oz this December! The job network gave me a yellow slip (free shoes!) to go and pay for them at the shoe store. When I went to pay the cashier, she told me they couldn’t take these slips anymore because my job-network never payed. I bought the shoes anyway astounded!
Helped a friend with a rather wordy application today and felt good. I hope she gets it.
Reminds me of how I like writing, but I haven’t for ages. It’s one of my skills. What’s up with me not writing lately?.. I donno..? Haven’t gotten the last 5 or so applications. No APAM.. Maybe I needed a rest. Or I’m layed to rest. But now I’m feeling like.. what. the. fuck. am i doing next year with my art projects..
.. Where are they touring.. What am I doing? This is stupid. And I’m in Sydney.. Stupider. Tonight I’m all covered in glitter from performing my corporate work show and I’m not sure if I can go on with the uncertainty.. I will go on with the uncertainty. I certainly will……..
………. Writing for different people. Writing in your own voice, whatever that means. I don’t know what I sound like. So maybe my voice isn’t my own. Writing for myself. Writing music again. It’s funny how when times are good, all I play are cover songs. I blame relationships for being good. i don’t know if good’s what I ever want. There always has to be a little bit of blood and something more which unhinges the nerves and frees the vocal cords. I’m most happily unhappy and not very good, but excellent.
Photos of myself (Skye). I’m trying to work out which image to use to advertise my Pole Tuition. If you could pick 1 or 2 what would you pick?

I woke up this day
No longer morning
The death of everything.
This is the meaning, sleep of youth.
