Merry Christmas

I just wanted to post a quick blog to say Merry Christmas to all who read this blog. It has been a great year for me personally, having worked with some amazing people, from Accidental, Wireless Mystery, Devised and Fringe Benefits Theatre companies, and the various film projects I worked on.
I can't wait to work with those guys again in 2011, and see what new stuff they produce themselves.
Once again, Happy Christmas, try to get home, and have a wonderful new year.

Fringe Benefits' intensive weekend

This past weekend has been set aside for some time for the Fringe Benefits annual intensive weekend. This is a chance to really get together as a company and strengthen relationships, as well as get valuable training time with the brilliant Peter Quigley.
It was held in the Mary Magdalene Hall, where we did a lot of rehearsing for Incident at Vichy, and where Fringe will be hosting all of their workshops after the new year.
Many of the cast of ...Vichy were there, as well as members of the group who weren't part of that production, including; Mickey Mason, Michael Burkes, Fra McCartney, Ciaran Moore, Gerald McCann, Denise Farrelly, Tom Dart, Bryan Marshall, Adrian Cooke, Doireann O'Brien, Gemma Duffy, Caroline Brennan, Denis McAlinden, Peggy O'Neill, Michael Burkes, Andy Gray, Sam Mahadeo, with Cathy McCullough administrating things.
It's surprising how beneficial such training can be, even the simple addition of being able to return to the exercises you were performing the very next day, as opposed to a whole week later.
There's one more workshop next weekend before the Christmas break, but as Peter pointed out, four hours may feel like too little in comparison to this weekend!
