Performing

I’ve started getting ready for my first aerial showcase and it it SUPER exciting.

We picked a Halloween theme, and after a whole ton of deliberation I decided I wanted my act to be Jekyll and Hyde; I’ll be performing on sling. This is unique and challenging for a variety of reasons, the first and foremost being that it will require a lot of really good characterization on both extremes. But there are also lesser challenges, like how on earth do I pick a costume that accurately represents both characters without having to change several times partway through and how do I find music that transitions between happy and scary three times? (I’m really set on that three times thing. And for the record, my current plan is to make my own music by strategically combining two songs.)

My music has been a bit of a contentious issue, but if I can use it I already have most of my choreography figured out and am hoping to spend most of the time left between now and the showcase working on developing really good character movement.

In any case, I am pumped to be performing. 😀
