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”.
