Beginning of PUSH

This is the end of the first week of my summer apprenticeship with PUSH Physical Theatre.
It has been an amazing, stretching, and exhausting week, not only physically but emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

Here's an example of how my day is:
9:00 Devotions
9:30 Warm-Up
10:00 Conditioning (keyword: push-ups)
10:45 Technique (learning mime, gymnastics, etc...)
12:15 lunch after having burned so many calories
1:00 Warm-Up again
Then Improvisation with using different viewpoints and partnering
5:00 back to the Roberts townhouses for food!
7:00 Lecture by one of the company members...this is just every other night

There are 15 of us doing this apprenticeship. We are from all over...from various places in New York, Michigan, Delaware, Mississippi, Virginia, and North Carolina. God has certainly brought us together to pursue our passion for the arts. There is going to be 2 more weeks of training, then we go on tour! I'll put up the tour schedule sometime soon!

by the way-News Channel 13 is doing a special on PUSH this Friday (the 20th) on their morning show...5am-7:30am. They want to shoot us live so we have to be up at the studio at 5 am, which means we have to look like we're up at this hour everyday dancing! :)
