What I was doing was…

Defining the key scenes of my show today and having a first go at creating an application for funding. Lo and bloody behold, I have a wiggly worm of a possible flow for the story… and then I hit a brick wall in terms of the funding application and got myself lost. Really helped to draw on some helpful process I picked up from Bryony Kimmings’ Autobiographical Theatre workshop and some Kurt Vonnegut story shapes stuff, but beyond the narrative and concept I’m less clear about what I’m actually trying to do from the production side. Felt high working on story because it’s familiar and I’m really good at it, then I felt funky and despairing about the funding thing (trotting our old stories about money and worth, blah blah blah). Decided to stop fretting and that I need to speak with someone who has some experience so am going to put a call out and see if anyone can help.
