Godolphin talk and chat

Rambling introduction you can miss
'Work to avoid work' i have the evaluation for Cross Currents on the go and I am in artistic block/procrastination, listening to music- for next show-  answering emails and Michael has just shown me
so my poor husband had to eventually listen to me last night - who else can cope with artistic mutterings!- and i have written down all potential Doorways pieces and as normal there is so much more than one thought, probably enough material already! so that is now least around a large piece of paper on my table, next stop conversations and music with George and into more structured rehearsals, tidying up and looking for order!

Godolphin Talk for Cornish Doorways.
Thank you to Ann Clegg and her husband from Friends of Godolphin for coming to give us such a brilliant talk on Godolphin Family History. The questions and following discussion were insightful from many angles, and we all wanted to know about the use of the 'under room' which we now know was a cider store.
Who writes history? where is the information found, kept? who interprets it?... the 'off the record'  stories and lives which supported and underpinned those we know of.

A wonderful short story within the talk has given us food for thought and with visiting artist Diane Hadden we will be returning to it for 3D art workshop 4th March.
Next week John Keys and Alessandra Ausenda visit for another Artists workshop towards installations, so we are moving on and hope to get Poetic support for some of writing we have been producing as well. (Dominic coming to meet us next Friday lunchtime )

                       3 of the 4 working groups collecting thoughts and ideas from the talk.

Still distracted .....
hey Shallal 2 how about this ??? or something like it lets keep listening!
Shallal 2 have collected about 20 mins of new pieces this term! they are on a roll....and we hope to show them possibly in March.

More procrastination from emails: meeting with Jane and Patrick Lowry Back Lane West coming up early March as well as being invited to work with Jules ( Get Changed Theatre Co and Philip - very excited to be asked....

so from this it's clear i am an ideas? person and not a great finisher - as i warn everyone who works with me, which now includes potentially Victoria who came to visit yesterday - busy day - Mike's fourth session with us, he is coming from Wadebridge courtesy of CPD card.
Jacob Wheeler also came, really pleased to see him! - multi talented, as are all the family - and he is already providing techy support, we can use that !!
