It's a long day - we began tech at 12pm and I'm so grateful to our volunteers and technical crew for their ability to take ownership of the new challenges that always seem to reveal themselves only in live performance.
Buzz. Vibrant energy. Excitement.
Although many elements of the performance are taken care of before tech - the programs, the order of show, the order of tech, advertising, rehearsals, communication - there is so much that happens on the day of the performance as well. I am so energized by the creative energy!
We again, had a packed house for the performance. Bill Hebert came by to take pictures and his Photo Journal is on the Philly Dance Journal. Check it out here - Bill Hebert's Behind the Lens.
Now, the process continues as we organize the audience feedback and share it with the participants. One of our audience members commented that she loves the feedback form because she feels responsible for her randomly assigned artist. "I really have to pay attention to what they're doing and the choices they're making, so I can provide clear feedback. I get excited when it's my turn!"
Thanks, KYL/D for continuing the series! Thanks, to our crew for your dedication and hard work! Thanks, to the artists who gave of themselves so willingly in performance and process! Thanks, to our audience for your enthusiasm and participation! Thanks, Bill, for adding your artistic voice through these pictures!
