It begins

Day 1

Read it.
Measure for Costumes.
Dream of ACME Bombs and Black Holes. And lots of musing on blood. Yes, this one's going to be messy.
Jump rope.
Ooops, somebody vomited. Must be working hard.
Run and Jump in Pairs.
We made Songs. Complete with choreography, solos and good, old-fashioned fun.
A great start.

This 1'st week is dedicated to Out of Hand Boot Camp. We train as an ensemble to create the physical language and style of the show. To develop the strength and focus needed to pull off amazing feats, stunts, comedy and the bloody, bloody violence. This cast of Out of Handers - favorites who have worked/trained and created this kind of work together before - jumped right in and has already discovered some nice, nice images.

a more precise look:

6:00-6:30 Arrival, hellos, and waiting for the few missing individuals.
6:30-7:30 Run Thru – show clocked in at 44 minutes – gathering thoughts about things we liked and things that confused us, made list of cartoon-specific images and items, list of songs that the cartoons would get together and sing, list of songs we would get together and sing.
7:30-8:00 Break/Measurements
