Today marks the 4 weeks to my overseas trip – this trip, I am looking forward to, for may reason. I am learning about new experimental work and performing arts. I am really excited and at the same time nervous … Remind me of the word that my friend posted on my facebook page.
First part of the trip is organised – I didn’t have to do much as David organised me to meet with his partners and I get to visit and train at the circus in Toronto, not sure which one but more surprise for me I believe. 🙂
Planning for UK, is coming along. Candoco Dance Company is confirmed although Gravity and Levity has decided to postpone their intensive aerial dance training. I was disappointed as I was looking forward to learning aerial dance under a new environment. This means I will have to continue looking for professional development opportunities in UK.
It is a good thing that I decided to withdraw from my honours program of Master of Environment degree. I can now focus on my performing arts career – the start of the journey. Eventually, I will be able to study Master degree in performing arts so I can do my PhD.
My main focus now is to hope that I do get the grant from Arts Queensland (Individual Funds) and Australia Council for the Arts (Experimental Funds). Once I have those, I will able to continue my professional development. It is hard for artists to support themselves. I am learning a lot about the arts environment. Perhaps I will be able to integrate my current background with the future creative arts.
Oh and while I am still blogging, my partner has gave me an early birthday and christmas present – a Nikon D5200 Twin Kit with accessories. I am happy however surprised!! I am looking forward to making my first Vlog with the camera tomorrow and taking several pictures to practise. Good preparation before I leave Australia.
