I've decided to have a theatre-heavy year in 2009. Aside from continued work on "Love You Approximately," I'm planning to work with Olli Ricken on a clown show, "Angel," devise a new show (working title "9pm") for performance at the Christchurch Art Gallery, and hopefully in Wellington as well, and direct a play written by Sally McIntyre. At the moment I'm about to start work on 4 Spanish costumes for the Lyttelton Street Party on 22 February and have ideas for another short short film.

Mia Verlaine ... Lights! Camera! Action!

We've just finished our week's work filming the New Zealand elements of Love You Approximately for the Spanish/Catalan version, which will be performed in Girona in May. It was very satisfying to see the whole script come together and feel how the story unfolds and have a real sense of what we've created so far. I had to feed in all of Pere's lines, so I really feel in there with the characters, and have started feeling sad about not going to Spain to see the show premiere there...
