' A fist full of love' The NOTPARTOF festival.
'A fist full of love,' is a musical or 'a drama with song' that i have been a production/admin assistant on since the beginning of rehearsals in March. The performance is very quirky and different and is due to open in AXM on Canal street AT the beginning of July. Thematically the show is very eccentric and is about lesbian domestic violence,insecurity and the fragility of the human condition. This quite dark topic is wrapped around a cabaret layout, dancing girls,drag queens, lesbian kissing,fight scenes and lesbian adultery.I found the idea quite fascinating and something i had never been involved in in a venue that will attract people from all different sexual backgrounds.
I've been involved in organising rehearsals and rehearsal spaces, getting to know the cast, sourcing dancers and i am hoping to soon be either a dancer or be involved in the choreography and also a possible projection and dance seen which i am helping to conceive. I was recently able to to photograph a fight choreography session at one of the rehearsals which i found quite interesting as a choreographer.Hopefully, i will be able to have some involvement in the set/lighting and sound design closer to festival and learn as many skills as possible.
Get tickets on SKIDDLE! £5! AXM 6th 7th and 8th of July.
