Oh, Naked friends...
Life has been a tidal wave of changes this summer - all for the good, but tumultuous none-the-less.
The biggest change: I am moving. From Seattle to Vashon Island, with my son and husband, to a rented farmhouse on 10 acres of wide open meadow. We are happy! And moving next Monday - so in the midst of the madness.
After that, I am going on a writing retreat, alone, to a lovely spot on Orcas Island - a beautiful home offered to me by an amazing arts supporter. I've been doing my research and daydreaming, and a bit of new writing on See Me Naked, and there I will channel it all into new material. I'll send you all a snippet in a few weeks!
We'll head into our workshop and development phase starting in late September / early October - putting the new material on its feet and seeing how it dances.
We (the folks producing See Me Naked) in Seattle have moved the premiere of the newly revamped piece into early 2013 - a few months later than we'd originally planned. We did this for a number of reasons - my move and its attendant chaos; Elizabeth Klob, our director, is deeply involved with a new UMO show that opens in mid-September; we have applied for some grant funding that would support production costs for more shows, and if we get it we cannot spend it until 2013. Things like that.
I will keep you all updated on what will unfold when - and I will be sending off physical rewards soon!
Much aloha to you all,
Maria & the Naked team
