Frida Kahlo with blood red lips
Strange babies gyrating in the womb
Awkward teenagers dancing to Toreador
A very large dinosaur running round the room
An old cold woman trying to clear snow with a wooden spoon
A beautiful woman with a pomegranate in a strange embrace with a sinister gentleman
A lonely poet trying to talk to the anguished subject of Edvard Munch’s painting
Conflicting needs – lust vs cherish, humiliate vs entertain, beg vs seduce
Many Hamlets, a few Yelenas, an Astrov, a Chebutykin, a Nina
Lee Strasberg like an Old Testament prophet preaching his Method
A lot of laughter, many tears, lots of memories, and endless relaxation….
THANK YOU LOLA and the whole Class for nine days of incredible inspiration.
