Meanwhile, the creation of our Undiscovered Shakespeare Play continues, slowly but surely, with some lines proving more popular than others… Who would have thought that relatively obscure quote would pop up twice in such a short space of time?

Thunder’s Mouth Theatre is now offering an Internship Program. We have a position available for a dedicated theatre-maker willing to offer time and energy to help present and promote our production here in Brisbane, and to assist with organising our 2011 tour.

Playing with Music

Rehearsing with music

Today Jeff Turpin, our soundscape composer-musician came to rehearsal for the first time, so Tony and I decided to do a fun read-through of the script, to give him an idea of how we play. Jeff brought several instruments, some familiar to me, some he almost certainly has made himself because they look like the unusual offspring of several different instruments.  I’ll take photos next time.

So we read, and we played, and Jeff played along, switching instruments, wandering around us as we roamed around him, happily interacting with us. At the end he gave me a run down of what he got from the text, and a whole bunch of new possibilities emerged that never occurred to me as I wrote it. I’ll happily take whatever I can get!
