With the last triad of months, I finish this recap of the year 2022. October The month started with a great Off Stave show at Hoopla’s pre-party before taking a few days off to go attend part of the Sitges International Film Festival. I love horror movies, and this is a festival I’ve been attending throughout the century. The pandemic…Continue reading2022 Recap (& IV)

2022 Recap (III)

The second half of the year was very juicy for me. July & August Slow summer months. Time to go home. We spent a few days in Valencia. We visited friends, attended a music festival, swam in the Mediterranean sea and enjoyed our hometown. It was very refreshing. Off Stave had good momentum with many rehearsals and performances, even debuting…Continue reading2022 Recap (III)

Dear blog, I’m so sorry. I’ve just blinked, and a year has passed. A year, thankfully, filled with growth on a personal and professional level. I wish my updates would come sooner, but my mind is what it is. I guess this will have to do. Settle for an unoriginal recap. The year’s tops. The Milestones. Time to sit down…Continue reading2022 Recap (I)

So long 2021

Here we are, at the end of the infamous 2020’s sequel. This year I won’t post a record of most of the days of 2021 like I did last year. This year I just want to offer a brief reflection about what this year has brought to me. Let’s admit that pandemic wise it hasn’t been as bad as 2020…Continue readingSo long 2021

Thank you BLINK

Since things started to open up I’ve been applying for facilitating positions without luck, but luck strikes in different ways. I happen to follow a lot of applied theatre accounts on Twitter and I read, from Siobhán’s account, a call for volunteering to help on a show by BLINK, an applied theatre company that facilitates and works with and for…Continue readingThank you BLINK

About teaching Playback Theatre online

We are way past the half of 2021. When the year began, I decided to start teaching my playback theatre introductory course online and it has been a very interesting ride. I taught this course before, in presential mode while life before lockdown, and it didn’t occur to me doing it online. The awkwardness of being dispersed through different homes…Continue readingAbout teaching Playback Theatre online

Are things looking up?

It’s been a while since I last checked here as an individual human being and I thought it was about time to catch you up with what I’ve been doing. Things are still slow, I’m not going to lie. On a personal note, we don’t live in Camden anymore. After months of trying to work together in barely 39 square…Continue readingAre things looking up?

It’s not competitive if you are building community

I’ve been in many conversations lately where the dark side of competitive improv has brought up. I agree with the fact that competition is able to bring out the worst of ourselves and can turn into a bitter experience something that is supposed to be funny for some participants. I’ve come from Valencia, an area in Spain where Canadian style…Continue readingIt’s not competitive if you are building community

Creativitired

I wish I could be one of those people who took the most of the pandemic lockdown and wrote a book or a play. Although it’s true that I’m writing more because of this situation, there are many factors that are affecting my creativity. Not that I’m claiming that I am a very creative person, I always struggle with that.…Continue readingCreativitired
