The first five days...
Thank you to all of you who already pledged your support for B-CIMF, the music festival and the play. Me and My Shadow had its first actor rehearsal yesterday and we had so much fun. We are tremendously excited to get this world premiere theater experience on its feet. With your funding, we will get reimbursed for the rehearsal supplies already purchased and the design costs ahead.
Our awesome set designer, Luke Massengill, has so many outstanding ideas already in effect. Boxes in multiple sizes will be painted with splattering-techniques for an artist-studio effect. There are so many scenes and locations in Me and My Shadow, especially in Act I, so these will be paired with choreography to show locations like the Morro Bay docks, Marianne's bookstore and Jonathan's wine bar.
Luke is working with Jason Willford and Tyler Walker to get projected scenery and artwork all over three huge canvases that will hang from the VaC's rafters. These will be a part of the painter's studio landscape that Luke has designed into the play.
Veronica Von Tobel's costume designs are beautiful, magical and colorful. They will work to further the movement choreographed by Yurek Hansen and enhance the double-casting and time lapses inherent to the play's dramatic structure. It's going to be cool. Your money will be well spent.
Also, Kris has been busy with musicians in rehearsal. We are so lucky to be working with these incredible players, listeners and collaborators. Their work is truly going to enhance this project. All our actors, musicians and artists are working their butts off. Thank you for your support, for talking about this project and being as excited as we are!
