And so here we are, it’s the opening of our tour Inspired 2013, we open at Laban Theatre London this evening. How exciting.
Yesterday we spent the day in Studio 7 at Trinity Laban rehearsing all 3 pieces – Missing Pages, Degrees of Freedom and Axiom Tangent, putting the FFIN machine into action. Whilst the dancers were in the studio, there was a whole lot of technical stuff going on in the theatre. The Laban Theatre technical crew under the direction of Fay Patterson, were rigging and focussing lights together with Mark Read our production manager, and setting the stage ready for today’s technical and dress rehearsals.
Photographer Paul Trask has spent the last 2 days observing the pieces and getting a good grip on some tasty shots that he will be taking for promotional material for the company. He is an amazing artist, he will watch and wait and always seems to capture the essence of our work in his images. We’re all looking forward to seeing the results, which of course we will share with you.
During the day, I met up with Ronen Kozokaro (composer of Synapsequence) and Oli Newman (composer of Axiom Tangent) which was great. Made some new friends which is always good and met up with some familiar ones too – how come work is such good fun?
And so today has come – opening night later tonight – and time for Gary and I to hand over our work to the dancers and the production team. Do we trust them? Of course we do, our creations are now flying the nest and we are very much looking forward to sharing them with you all.
