mind adventures

an experimental theatre company set up in sri lanka in 1999.

menage a trois

You know how you go through those patches in your life or work when nothing much is happening, it’s all a bit ho-hum, and then suddenly everything is happening all at once? one day you wake up, look at your organiser (or in my case a white board – ‘cos it’s difficult to lose!) and think ‘oh my goad, when did all this bladdy happen?’ and then you insert an evil chuckle and say ‘bring it on baby, mama thamai miniha’.


thats pretty much me, right now.

a few weeks ago i was struggling to get my pet project ‘in camera’ off the ground, when lack of nanny, lack of sleep and lack of sanity forced me to shelve it yet again. boo! hiss!

so then, because theatre is what provides that delicate balance between sanity and madness in my life, and i must always ‘be up and doing’, i turned to masii’s poetry which i’ve told you about already, and started producing that. its 18 – 20 may at barefoot. going along really well, btw, and i’m putting up ‘fashion tv’ now, which is going to be performed by ryan and anushka.

in addition to that, i now also find myself directing ladies’ college for the all-island shakespeare drama competition in june. i think i’m not allowed to say more than that we’re doing ‘a comedy of errors’. i’ll be working with a whole new bunch of kids between 13 and 16 or something like that. that’ll be the fun bit. scary. but fun.

last but not least, june also involves me being in charge of the biggest bunch of fairies you’ll ever see this year. send your mind back to the buba party ‘offshore life’. not just a party, but the party. the party that is now the benchmark for all other parties. the guys who almost singlehandedly organised it are dj’s tim and ben.

ben used to do the morning show on lite fm, when i was on mornings at tnl. he is one of my soul brothers (see also howie brohier, nige ‘takarang’ de zilwa, marlon janssen). so when he called up and said, ‘do you believe in fairies?’, how could i not clap my hands? tim and ben are doing their next party on june 2nd at h2o, and it’s called ‘fairytales’. nothing to do with that horrible travesty of a remix on air at the moment. like i said i’m handling the fairies, and with a budget hitting the million mark, you can be sure it won’t be just a bit of glitter anf fluff.

it’s all happening within the space of about 6 weeks, and it’s all coming at you. let me not hear you say there is nothing to do in this city.

watch this space.
