Once again I am off to my home-away-from home, London... this time for the world premiere of "Stuck!", Steve Balderson's homage to vintage women-in-prison movies. "Stuck!" will be screening for the first time ever at Raindance Film Festival, the largest Indie Film festival in Europe, showing at the Apollo Cinema in London, near Piccadilly Circus, on Saturday October 10th.
I am so excited for the premiere, but also a little nervous, as are the other women in the cast...because we haven't seen the movie yet!
The past month has been spent at home- pretty rare for me these days! It has been great to have a break from travel...I have been working on new choreographies and costumes, re-bonding with my boyfriend and cats, teaching local classes and workshops, writing and reading a lot, mostly dance biographies.
After the UK, I will be attending another film festival- The Tall Grass Film Festival, in Wichita, Kansas where "Underbelly: A Year in The Life Of Princess Farhana" will screen on Saturday, October 24th. I will perform directly after the film at The Orpheum Theater on October 24.
I will also be teaching workshops at Amira Dance Productions in Wichita on October 24 & 25th, contact Terri Dirks for info: firstname.lastname@example.org
