we're going off to California [May. 24th, 2007|06:29 pm]

Tomorrow morning I leave for California. Los Angeles, to be precise.

PGraph is performing in Out of Bounds West, the sister improv festival to Out of Bounds, right here in Austin. This is exciting, because it will be our first ever troupe performance out of state. And we're coming from a good place. We'll be performing Family Portrait, our improv format that turns the microscope on a single family for the duration of the show. It showcases, when it goes right, a mix of both comedy and drama, and becomes a fusion of the styles of some of my favorite troupes. Also, it should be fairly different from what the rest of the Fest has to offer. At least that's the theory. All I really want is to do a good show so I can relax and enjoy my stay in LA without agonizing over our performance.

I'm reaching some sort of crossroads with improv. In a good way. The more I do it, the more I'm coming to believe that this is my life's work. I have so so so much to learn. I still feel sometimes that I'm deluding myself... that I'll never be more than adequete. Right now I feel that I'm barely keeping my head above water. But I hope to get stronger... to always be learning... to further the art, to make my scene partners look good, to be honest with myself.

I'm going to have to figure out a way to work part time in the future. There's just too much to do.

Break a leg! :-)

And on a related note: Why hasn't someone added the festival to Wikipedia?
