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 http://www.independenteye.org/news/index.html. 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
