Posts Tagged ‘Company’

I love when I talk to people that I am working with.  And I don’t mean the usual “Hi, how are you?” kind of stuff.  I was so lucky that I had the opportunity to chat with Teatro Vision’s Artistic Director Elisa Alvarado.  I am currently working on editing the interview for a podcast, so YAY!!

During my talk with her, I feel like I learned more about why I want to open my own theatre company some day.  I doubt that I would be lucky enough to have the same sort of eventful career that she got to have.  I think in my head, what I picture is, as Elisa explained to me in the interview, more of a collective than a “company.”  There’s something to be said about surrounding yourself with people that you truly enjoy working with and creating good times and experiences with.  I hope you enjoy the interview when I get it posted.

The other thing that I love about doing these interviews is that it just inspires me to keep going, to keep working, to keep dreaming, to keep enjoying, and to keep protesting.  To make sure that I should do everything I can to help companies that I believe in and to promote the artists that I admire and enjoy.

I wanted to get this up at least by 11pm on New Year’s Eve.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t find ANYWHERE in the space from Reno to Gardnerville at an hour before midnight that had a wi-fi connection that would load the podcast fast enough to get it up and running before the end of 2010!  I was standing outside of a place called Keva trying to piggyback off of their wi-fi as a last resort, but standing outside in 30 degree weather for 20 minutes and only getting to 51 percent complete really got me so mad!! Now that I am home, here it is:
