My stint as Barbie-head

It seems to be a day for fluff posts from me, so here's another...

While in "R&J", I discovered that my fellow Tutian, Alice, has quite a gift for hair design (as well as a love of doing it). Though she was quite busy on stage as Juliet, she would run back between scenes to coif Lady Capulet. At first the hair design was the same, but in the last few weeks she decided to get creative and tried at least 10 different doos.

We didn't take shots of all of them, but if you'd like to see some of my hair adventures you can

Gorgeous, all of them (all of you)! I particularly like the last one.

I confess, I missed the subtlety of your shifting hairdos when I saw the show.

(And for your next trick: how much time do 100-year-old russian peasants have for coiffure while traipsing through the woods?)

No, you didn't miss anything. She only did one fancy doo per night...these pics were taken over the course of several evenings.

Nice (and appropriate) icon, btw!

100-year-old Russian village women do not coif - they cover. I'm sportin' a babushka in the next one (can you say "not sexy"?)!

I'm really curious about the staging of the very end of the (next) play -- perhaps there's room for a sexy-hair transformation there? One can always hope =)

(Actually, I'm pretty curious about lots of aspects of how the play will be staged -- there's a lot of curious stuff to contend with.)

:: Nice (and appropriate) icon, btw!::

Thank you =) I believe copperwise made that for me many years ago.

Ahhh - you are correct. In the last moment of the show there will be some sort of change...but I have no idea what that will look like as of yet. You are correct, there is a lot of curious stuff in this one and the staging will be very imaginative.

The set is very interesting (we've seen sketches and a model now) and should support creative interpretations. A lot will come from our movement as well.

No pressure.

EEEK! (I feel like I need way more time then I'm going to get on this one!)

Listening to the radio this afternoon, I heard an interview with a film-score composer; he was talking about how the time-constraints of the film business force him into creativity, that the schedule demands that he make choices on a constant basis, and that the pressure of it all turns out some fantastic gems. (That last wasn't his language, but I rather like it...) I thought of you when he was talking, hoping you and your con-conspirators will find inspiration and creative juiciness in the intensity you must be working in right now.

Good luck and *hugs*! I hope you've had a bit of a respite in the last week or so, and will be refreshed to dive headlong (babushka and all) into Russian surrealism.

Thank you...I will remember these words. We have a designer run tonight and I am going to hold the intention of taking risks, making bold choices and being present for the gems that pop up.

Stay warm...Jen

You shine, Jen, and I support you in realizing that intention.

I am convinced that today is full of treasures, and I trust you'll find (or create!) some of them.

Break a leg =)
