thea: Greta's impact

Greta is an amazing performer and talking to her and watching her work sent Hab and I into an inspiration frenzy. get ready for a cocktail party at which strange things occur. get ready to blur the line between audience and performer, you are not off the hook. Greta's use of the WHOLE space had me literally climbing the walls to see what our limits were. Her use of character got me thinking about the characters we will play, and her 100% free and recycled costume reminded me of the environmental implications of playing a found art mas. She is political but not preachy, funny without being laughable, intimidating without being scary and she is absolutely brilliant. even as she sketched in her character during the rehersal we could see so much as though an entirely different person was coming through her skin. she has such control of her body, her stance, her presence. Hab and I were simply in awe and so dissapointed that we won't see her final performance. if you have the opportunity, go and see her tomorrow night, it will be worth it.
