Puppet show

I'm in Paris, staying with my wonderful friends Gilles and Flo. Yesterday we scoured their district, the predominantly Indian quartier de la Rue du Fabourg Saint Denis, for scrub gloves and vegetables which Flo Manlik then transformed -- by magic and sewing -- into glove puppets. These were then distributed to the audience at my reading (I say "my reading", but in fact commissioning editor Xavier Belrose and translator Marie Surgers made an excellent performance of the first two chapters) and manipulated according to what the characters were doing at any given point. I even gave one to an infant sitting in the front row -- a child, thankfully, below the "age of comprehension" (although it's conceivable he could have suffered horribly by putting the hot pepper in his mouth).

Re: wish I was there

You do bang on about living in WC1, don't you Suzy? Do you ever post to Click Opera without mentioning it?

Yes, living in WC1 must be very nice, good for you.

Hey, if you got the postcode, flaunt it, as Salvador Dali always used to say.

tell your eager public: do you often inappropriately interrupt a conversation between friends?

I wish that there were enough entertainment dollars to go around to support a life of leisure and puppet-making for all of us. :(

berlin puppets

Read an account of the berlin puppet reading here (scroll down to part 3) http://rinusvanalebeek.wordpress.com/2009/09/20/the-murder-of-ceasar/
Some pictures were taken on that evening. I don't know by who, and if they were ever put on line.

Encore !!!

Hello,

Avec un peu de retard, je voulais juste te dire merci pour cette soirée.
J'ai adoré ces lectures. Drôles (comment aurait-il pu en être autrement pour la divinité que tu incarnes si bien), vivantes (avec des marionnettes piquantes) et décalées (heureusement la traductrice te remettait aussi sur les rails).
Cet inimitable accent anglais, le charme d'une Jane B puissance X !
Encore une fois merci à toi et tes amis pour cette soirée sans faute.

Quelle chance, nous aurons droit à un autre spectacle le mois prochain. Eh oui, vive Momus le musicien ! :-)
