Alice

I’ve been recruited to help Kat’s dance school make scenery for their competitions/recital, and, long story short, they need backdrops for an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ ballet.  I keep reminding them they have no reason to believe I’m actually capable of producing said scenery, but they are possessed of an unreasonable confidence in me.  It is at once flattering, confounding and nervousmaking.  The choreographer Michelle brought the pop-up book by Robert Sabuda to our meeting, as it has been helping guide her vision so far.  It was awesome.  The art was cool, but the ideas and the mechanics of the pop-ups blew my mind.  What a joy.  Check it/him out if you have the chance-
