So Many Changes

Like many artists, I am rarely satisfied with the first iteration of a project. After the performances of Saudade at the Intersections Festival, we had lots of conversations with audience members and each other about what could be clearer, stronger and more powerful in the piece. From puppet movement to sound, to crankie images, we examined each element of the project to see what could be improved.

Because we are going to the Winnipeg International Storytelling Festival in May, we have a deadline for completing all these fixes and it is getting close! Here are some photos of the work we’ve been doing:

A new frame! We hope this will make everything a little more visible to the audience.

Here, the fabric panels are coming together and the crankie is in place.

We’ve added scenes to the end of the show. Here, Cecilia tries to manipulate three puppets with two hands.
