On the road again.

Well, I’m leaving Portland on the 21st for a 14 week stint in NY.  It’s a mixed bag.  I feel like I’m stepping out just when some things are starting to ramp up here.  Theatersports is starting up again, and a new project that I’ve been involved in “Icarus” is going to do its first shows.  I’m pumped about both.

I’m a bit hesitant about this field study.  It’s looking like I might have to stop up to Toronto to get enough data on long form shows.  The main long form theater in Rochy only has 2 weekends of shows scheduled, but they also have a number of Sunday shows scheduled (if they can get attendance on Sundays).  I don’t mind having a legitimate reason to go to Toronto, but the people that I would couch surf with might take issue.  This is the nature of field studies, though.  You go in with a plan, and rarely is it adequate for the reality.  It’s a good thing I’m a good improviser.  This is going to work out, but I just don’t know how exactly.  Gotta love a mystery.  Stay tuned for the “Anthropology Diaries”.
