The Improlab team plus Ami Yoshide and Sachico M (Japan) finally made two nights of improvised performance at the Studio, Sydney Opera House. The Studio is a tough and unadventurous space, and hard place to find inpiration. Each night we ran two sections of about 40 minutes each. After the first night I was completely drained and after the second I was rushed into a speedy bump out. Our rehearsals were much better than the shows. But the audiences were as expected - half bored out of their minds and the other half totally enthused. Overall I think its the most genuine and rewarding artform anyone could hope to participate in.

Astoundingly Nun's Night Out seems to have won Best Australian Dance film for 2006. I didn't go because of the bizzare context but I'm very thankful to Julie-Anne Long, Erin Brannigan and Amanda Card from Onextra for helping it rise to the surface. I still don't know how it all happened. But anyway, Yee haw!
