FINISHING MY FRINGE SHOW CHECKLIST
3 years ago I started a performance piece about my relationship with my Dad called 'Vacations With Dad'. I performed it half finished at the Rogue Performance Festival that year, but I've never finished it. I will be working on it this summer and here's what I need to accomplish to do that.
- •Gather materialsMy plan is to gather photos, letters, and court transcripts. I'm not sure what else I want, but these seem like a good start.
- •Write out the rest of the storyI left out a ten year chunk of the story and my Dad keeps saying, 'when are you going to tell the rest of the story?' I need to just get a draft on paper so that I have a jumping off point. I just wasn't ready to deal with it 3 years ago.
- •Drives with DadThe plan is to take a couple of weekends and re-visit a couple of places with my Dad. We need to go to Santa Cruz, Ione, Folsom, and I'm not sure where else.
- •...I'm not sure what will come after that. Will I want to use Power Point, or just throw out all of the materials on a table? Don't know. Do I want to incorporate music? Don't know.
