Today I felt happy as normal because as I am a natural born performer who loves being on the stage I had my first dadaa showing and mum came straight from Melbourne just to see me because dad couldn’t make it and Michelle came to watch me in action in at the class which was fun and joined in with the stretching and warming up

I felt like its been a while performing solo in the studio like it was the first time because Tracksuit it is with other people while performing in the studio this one is for me BUT I’ AM OK

just as normal at 3:00 i came into the studio and i had fun on the talking iPad went through the dance a lot and i mean a lot i have been yawning a lot because of how much work we have done when i say we i mean me then at the end of the amounts of times we did the dance we did it again while doing breathing exercises to get me in the zone first then maintaining it in the dance as well I am yawning jus thinking about it  we then (I) wrote on a drawing tool on the iPad and i wrote “When I dance I Feel Like Myself” and drew a squiggle then used that in the dance and used my voice audio with the music in the middle and ending with my voice saying “I am Ok”

May the 2nd I found out from the Australia Council  for the Arts that I have got the grant money  for my FINDING LOVE project!

I am working with Finn O’Branagain from July 17 to develop the script for the play which will show next year.

On May 19 I interviewed three people: Justin, Daisy and Greg all from WA.

On May 26 I interviewed another three people: Verity (WA) and Josh and Lorcen (SA).

Julia Hales and Verity Cope

These six interviews with another three I did in 2016 will contribute a lot to the creative development process.

Today we did Sophie’s character. She is a lot different than the previous characters.

The gestures are a lot more feminine than Mark and Madison. I’m really happy with the characters because they’re my own.

Sophie uses Shakespearian language which is easy and hard.

On Friday May 26 I SKYPE interviewed Josh and Lorcan to ask them questions about what love means to them.

It was really good SKYPING them in Adelaide as I could talk to them about my FINDING LOVE project.

It was good to meet them on the computer.

Josh and Lorcan said: Love is from the Heart.

Love is through their family and their friends.

And through partners.

The mixed reality project has helped me explore many past memories of the most significant part of my life.

Reliving the experience through story telling with Lincoln has helped me find some healing around the mixed feelings that run through my heart, body and mind.

The script was somewhat hard to piece together but with the help of it started to explode out of my head onto the paper.

I am really looking forward to putting it all together.
