Now that my plans are a bit more official, I don't feel awkward sharing them. As of this past week, I am officially going to Berlin, have a place to stay for a month, and am flying out of Rome. How my friend Allason and I are getting from Berlin to Rome has yet to be established, but that's not the point. The point is that I'm spending a month rehearsing for a performance, then galavanting around Europe. I can't even describe my excitement.
I'm flying out on the 4th of July, continuing the not-yet-tradition of flying out of the country on Independence Day, spending a few days on my own before checking in to What Moves You? a Eurythmy conference (eurythmy is quite difficult to explain, simply put it's a dance form with specific movements for music or spoken word, but that definition seems constraining to me).
The conference is a month worth of rehearsals cumulating in a performance in early August. The conference is being held at a school in Berlin. After the performance Allason and I have ten days to make our way down to Rome before heading back to good old San Francisco.
So far I've bought myself a travel book for Berlin and started making marks in it of what I want to do. Allason and I have brainstormed ideas of what we might do too, but we haven't made any hard and fast decisions yet. Have I mentioned that I'm excited? I am. Quite. I'm going to be spending a month with some of my favorite people in the world seeing new things and (hopefully) speaking in a language I don't quite understand (My teacher said my pronunciation is getting better though).
Anyone have any ideas?
