Hi all, it's Abi writing to say...WE DID IT! Three sold out shows and two weeks of recovery later, I am finally getting the chance to sit down and reflect. I am incredible humbled by the team of people who worked with me on this project. It was the first project of it's kind I have ever been involved with and to take something in my head and turn it into something I could share with other people AND to get to do that with some of my closest friends is definitely most mind-blowingly amazing. I am so proud of everyone and what we created together and again, I am so humbled to get to work with such incredible artists and humans. Thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way and to everyone who came to support us on the night(s)! I think the most fun I had during this project outside of actually performing were the conversations about the work I had in the days that followed. What am I saying, it was all fun!
Want to make a special horizon announcement! Our very own and very loved Liz Butler is going to be putting in an application for the TAHI festival happening in October. TAHI is a festival for solo shows and Liz is going to be making a show based on the incredible life of her grandmother, who passed away just at the start of our show. She is dearly loved and greatly missed. We are so excited to support Liz on this journey to make what is going to be an incredible show. I won't say anymore because I think she will be writing a post about it herself sometime soon but if you see her give her some lovveeeee and if you don't drop a loving comment for her!
Hope you all are well, feeling healthy, being kind to yourself and others, taking a stand when you need to be and sharing your gratitude for the things that support you and bring you joy. What's bringing me joy today is honey and pecans, the album Mandinga Times by Rita Indiana, and knowing I am about to go home and share some mescal with my flatmates.
