Subject:    October's Tempest Weblog


Here's a monthly update of our weekly journal on the creation of a live 
theatrical animation of Shakespeare's The Tempest, to be produced by Sonoma 
County Repertory and The Independent Eye in Sebastopol, CA, next September.

Please visit this weblog at It 
includes sketches and, in the future, audio & video. The cumulative backlog is 
there as well. And please add comments: we much welcome response at every stage 
of this trek.

Tempest #7 - 10/27 - Where Do We Start?
Alice and Prospero, with rogues' gallery. Workshop preparations, actor 
expectations, and wearing warm shoes.

Tempest #6 - 10/20 - My Egret
Speaking Shakespeare in the body of a survivalist. Finding his world in our 
California pasturage. A white egret's vigilance. Ariel & freedom.

Tempest #5 - 10/13 - Why Puppets?
Questioning the medium. Dream texture, verbal expressionism, magical fluidity, 
and blunt reality. Greenaway's visions. Rough scenic designs, weathered canvas 
and the landscape of innards.

Tempest #4 - 10/6 - Money & Fools
Royal patronage denied. Court fools:  Trinculo as the "natural."  Stephano and 
Jack Cade. The formation of the guerrilla comedy team.

Peace & joy-

Conrad Bishop
The Independent Eye
