Marmite/Vegemite debates continue at breakfast. Things could get ugly. Uglier than the taste of either. Students cleverly hide their excitement of hauling equipment to the venue. We eventually find the entrance, cleverly hidden behind two corners and a fire escape. Extremely artsy. Like Keithy.
Venue has funky edge to it. Old mill area as photo studio. Lots of plinths and white paint. Much time spent creating fun space. Keith shows off taping skills. Masking, not audio.
Groups jump into rehearsals. No, wait. Groups stroll in. Dancers jump. Hurts Bob’s back to watch.Tables at front starting to look like used technology junk store. Should put it on program as installation in its own right. Or left. Coders say that would be !right.
Bob drags Sarah, Isaac and Kelsey to Uni to write exams. Exams more stressful than performances. Sarah not allowed to answer with interpretive dance. Engineers consider that option. Back to Mill for more rehearsals. Group has used all available power bars, extension cords, etc. Asked to not make noise between 3 and 5: other tenants trying to impress new clients. Consider asking tenants to keep clients quiet between 3 and 5. Persuaded not to do that.
Concert goes very well. Fun mix of pieces by fun people. Nothing breaks, or not much: small miracles.
Great conversation/buzz with audience afterwards. Pack up, say goodbyes to many people. Group heads to hotel to stash equipment. Kelsey, Russill, Isaac, and Michael follow Bob to Uni for multiple guess exam. Post exam dash to CherryTree for post exam research.
Manage to complete research. Say goodbye to Ian, Bob and Keith head to hotel. Mysterious lack of students heading to hotel. Must be concentrating on research at other venues. No research for old men.
