Gredos - Program 47

Another program done and dusted, it seems to be getting easier each time - although there are always exceptions!!

This week was action packed - quite slow to start off but picked up quickly. As usual a good mixture of Anglos and Spaniards, and most of them willing to participate in one thing or another. I saw from this week however that I have to work harder to start cliches forming - as once it had started there was no way of breaking them up! Which I found was a slight issue in bringing the 'whole' group together.

The entertainment sections went over very well, and yet again I tried some of my new material and I'm pleased to say it worked! It's always good when that happens, so time off well spent, I think. Just to push things even more I actually managed 45 dances in 6 minutes this week!!! It nearly killed me, but I enjoyed it alot! I may post a video, it depends :S

In a team building exercise - most of the messages left for me were "hard on the outside but soft inside", yeah I am a bit, but don't tell everyone!!!

Well like a fine wine I'm getting better with age (or experience anyway), although it helps to have such a great Director - she does the hard work really ;)

Anyway as usual photos of the week are HERE

Spanish Humour

Well last night I went to see STAR TRIP with a friend and what a treat it turned out to be.

The humour was VERY good and the content simple and easy to follow - also (even better for me) it was done without speech!! As I don't speak Spanish I thought alot of the jokes would be wasted on me, but low and behold the humour was presented through visual and audial gags - basically they all speak noise, not words per se.

They also incorporated some awesome effects into the show making it very enjoyable and entertaining.

here is a link to their site

Super Site

Well as you can see I have updated my site completely.

It now has a new look, new playlist, new address and hopefully many new stories to come. I have enjoyed sharing the blog with Carrie who has finally headed off back to New Zealand although she is hoping to return to the UK once visa issues have been resolved: fingers crossed for her!

As for me I have had yet another two weeks off - so what to do!? Well I wrote and rewrote some scripts, and now need to test them to see how they work, also I have invested in a new friend details to come - needless to say I am looking forward to getting to know them and spend alot of time with my hand up up their ass! It's a puppet!!! boy you so rude!

Anyway hope you like the new improved site - any comments feel free to post ;)

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, its off to work I go...

Well after 4 weeks of holidays Im back to work. And let me tell you about time too!

I spent a few of the weeks developing scripts - writing plays and learning dance routines. Which as I aw this week was well worth the effort.
It kicked my ass, but I really enjoyed what I had put together for this program - it involved ALOT of new material - which could have fell flat - on the whole I think two scripts need rewriting - the rest worked well; some VERY well: ACT NATURALLY!

Each night developed more with the confidence of the group and people even started to write their own material; which was great to see although "its just not cricket" lol!

I was so glad to be back doing what I love the most entertaining and meeting folks. I will try to keep this enthusiasm alive, but I have a feeling when the group is THAT good it makes my life so much easier.

Thank you all for being so receptive to the program, the ideas and too each other ;)

I have posted a lot of photos HERE
