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)
Let’s continue the recap of this year with the second part of it. You can find the first part here. April I collaborated with the London Catalan School facilitation workshop for kids, parents and, finally, the staff. It felt amazing being able to facilitate in my mother tongue. I visited Scotland for the first time ever to perform in Saint…Continue reading2022 Recap (II)
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)
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
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
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
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?
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
The year 2020 will be remembered for the rise of the online improv scene. The now called zoomprov, because of the main platform chosen for this purpose (sorry Google, you released free Meet too late). It destroyed all territorial boundaries to bring people from all over the world to play together. Of course, everybody was doing it… in English. This…Continue readingLook, Mum, no mother tongue!
So, 2020 is over and it deserved an infamous spot in history books. A lot of tragedy struck a lot of people. As much I struggled with the many lockdowns and self isolations ,I consider myself lucky for staying healthy. 2020 brought a lot of silver linings like online improv and playback theatre. I also will remember this year as…Continue reading2020 for the record
