Boo for dropped batchi, yay for risk taking
Well, the Kokuritsu Gekijyo show has ended. Things went smoothly for the most part, and the show was really great. All the groups were really unique and the theater staff were amazing. It was a really great honor to be there and to be a part of the show.
Everything was great… save a wardrobe malfunction in Jack Bazaar. My obi came undone during the crazy bachi sharing stuff, causing us to drop a batchi and my mic pack to come lose. I had to stop and take the mic off. And Maz and I messed up both ITC and Tar Pits, despite our feeling really good about it in recent rehearsals. Alas… Such is the pain of being an artist-in-development.
But I’ll take the embarrassment and disappointment over playing it safe. Here’s to risk taking. And a second try on Oct 3! Now to find practice space in Tokyo…
