The rest of the company arrives from the East Coast in just under a week. Ape Woman headquarters (aka my kitchen) is already turning into a sideshow.
What a nice way to start a Monday. Ash Clayton and I stopped by FCC Free Radio this morning as the musical guest for Stage Time with Steven Alan Green. We played a special version of Glass Coffin, featuring ukulele and theremin. You can listen to the podcast here.
Thank you very much to Steven for having us on his show, and to his lovely co-host Justine for inviting us. We had a wonderful time.
Time to get your smock on.
I had the enviable pleasure of working with artist Alisa Javits at her home studio all afternoon, getting some paint and a lot of imagination on canvas for the set of The Ape Woman. The idea is to keep it light and portable so that, in the spirit of the circus, we can roll it all up and take the show on the road.
I am amazed at how many artists, like Alisa, have chosen to get involved with the show on such a bareknuckle, all-day-long level. In honor of these hardworking ape appreciators, I’ll be adding a new feature to the website to host their bios and links to their work. Stay tuned for that. If great art is an opportunity for generosity, collaboration, and co-creation, then I guess this is it.
