Months and months of work by so many people come to such short little stretch of time. I've been rehearsing and working a few days a week on the three puppets assigned to me since August, but the Wesleyan students, Leslie Weinberg the puppet designer and Bob Bresnick the director have worked themselves to the bone for this 25 minute show.
I am unspeakably grateful for the trust Bob and Leslie put in me to build puppets, and for another opportunity to perform, which I love so much. And my part as Don Quixote's right arm lets me be fantastically physical and dramatic.
The first show, Friday night. I and my wonderful and very strong partner Kenton try to take advantage of opportunities for great sentimental reveries and violence.
