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  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? 
Aristophanic vision.
Peace & joy-

Conrad Bishop
