Creation. Layers. Ovation. Cloud.

I am in love. 
The College Light Opera Company must be Cloud 9 itself. 
I’ve been up here just over a week, but it feels like it’s been months and that I’ve known these talented individuals for years. I can’t explain it properly really, but I can try: We’re planted here and given limited time to cause art, ultimately weaving an afghan of comfort, intricacy, and security. 
Never have I ever been a part of a schedule as rigorous and adrenaline-pumping as this. How did I ever think two weeks was a short rehearsal period??? With such confinements comes a specific creative problem solving technique, one only acquired with roots in a process such as this. Thus, my choreography has been pushed to edges I’ve never witnessed, teetering on it’s daring edges, catapulting into cacophonous and juicy moments of live theatre. 
Once again, Cloud 9. 
I can’t believe I’m here till the end of August. I know the harder times will come, but it’s all in the name of art, correct? I’m so grateful to be a part of this company and to be surrounded by such geniuses of growth in grace. 
It’s truly a grand time.
