1st day of our KIOTA Rehearsals!!!
A scratched floor marked with gaffer tape and remnants of the last show.
4 poses chosen going either with or against the flow.
One heated spot in a specific place by the tech box.
Hiatus Kioyote playing on the PA.
Jeans worn over basketball shorts worn over leggings, ready for action.
3 notebooks, 3 pens and an orange pencil case.
Free writing, conversations, laughter and lists.
The 4 of hearts marked with the name "Joe" randomly tacked to the ceiling and noticed mid-sentence.
The last Daal Pasty, gone, taken and not spoken about.
The sound of feet "accidentally" kicking chairs.
Walking to The Station and down memory lane.
A mirror watching every move framed by heavy navy velvet curtains.
A bouncy floor covered in the dance moves of the past.
The occasional hair and bit of fluff.
Denmark and thoughts of Rooted
Translating words of authenticity into moves.
Check-ins next to a big white wall clock.
An aux cable that doesn't quite fit in the socket.
A job well done!
