Subject: Tempest Weblog
We've begun a weekly journal on our creation of a live theatrical animation of
Shakespeare's The Tempest, spanning the next 13 months, produced by Sonoma
County Repertory and The Independent Eye.
I'm posting monthly summaries, in hopes that you'll visit this weblog at
http://www.independenteye.org/news/index.html. It includes sketches and, in the
future, audio & video. Please add comments: we very much welcome response at
every stage of the trek.
Tempest #3 - 10/1:
Elizabethan hats & power suits. Preparing rehearsals, story-boarding
improvisations. Sea-change projections. Miranda's nose. Clown feet. Kantor's
presence. Caliban in baseball cap? Prospero's exhaustion. Goddesses as foliage.
Tempest #2 - 9/14:
"Delicate" Ariel as fire and hurricane. A castrated Caliban? Shadows and the
challenge of organic gesture. The island as Prospero's dream, a shifting visual
field of alien backwaters.
Tempest #1 - 9/7:
Born of a grant application. Shakespeare and puppets. First sketches.
Prospero as colonizer, master of ceremonies, or victim with absolute power?
Peace & joy-
The Independent Eye
