It’s been a busy few weeks. When I’m not mixing I’m once again part of Theatre week in Skaraborg. This time it’s familiar grounds. I got wind of the fact that this time, the show would be set in Ekehagen (my work place, yes) and it was gonna be Shakespeare again. Much ado about nothing. But set in the stone age. Well, I love Shakespeare and I know my way around Ekehagen so heck yes. As soon as I said I was interested I got clear directives. “Here’s your script, you’re the Bad Gal with a capital B”. And once again; HECK YES! Being bad, you really get to play around with… pretty much everything.
The gender roles are completely switched (sort of illustrating a point too, because the men are quite annoying and weak), and I play the role that Don Jon had in the original. Good warrior, but jealous, hateful and narcissistic. I carry the biggest, heaviest warrior weapons (making up for something, I’m sure) and I’m a master manipulator.
Another fun aspect of the job is I get to play advisor since I actually work there, so when someone wants to know something about the stone age to get deeper into character they come to me.
In the pic below, I’m in full get-up, and I scared a kid like that. Not on purpose. He decided to sneak backstage and as he did, I appeared from the back room in the gear you see below for the first scene. I don’t know who was more surprised, the kid, or me hearing that unexpected scream…
