A Life of Epic-ness!

As I struggle climbing that steep difficult discouraging 1st phase of my life free-lancing, I make sure I frequently reflect upon the motivation behind my quitting the cushy corporate life. The stage and the spotlight!! Yes, I love the stage and the spotlight!!

This time, I get to work with the theatre company that I had craved to work for since I first saw their production. Not only did I like what I saw, but I have heard many of my arts performer friends rave about their team's warmness and professionalism. FINALLY, I am proudly in a Dama Orchestra production... and this has to be the most epic story of ancient China.

The team is exactly as people have raved about, super professional and really nice. They have been so organized and structured (creativity meet order... my universe!!). Everyone is so committed to the production and there isn't a single person in the production who does not commit to this production like it is their one and only career... doesn't matter if they are in it part-time only. We are given proper Mandarin classes, English classes, ancient Chinese movement/mannerism class, ... I have never been so proud to be Chinese ever! And don't get me started on the costumes!!! I'm soooo excited!

As for my role, I get to play someone older... a mother. Me? A mother?? hehehe. Ok, lotsa work to be done on character background and character analysis then.

Please come watch.... public show tickets are almost all gone. Do come for the charity nights then, you can do something good while you get entertained with the most epic story of an ambitious woman in the ancient patriarchal times!!

EXCITED!!! :) :) :)
