Fringe Fundraiser, Canadian Rep, Cahoots and Saying No

Toronto Fringe Kitchen Party last night, and the back room of CSI Annex got all spiffed up and so did we. Amazing food by Fidel Gastro, adorable entertainment by Liza Live! super cool auction items and 70+ guests. Fantastically fun evening congrats to the Fringe on having something that was just the right amount of elegant, and just the right amount of Fringe.

Very pleased to be working with Canadian Rep Theatre now, we’re doing a little online presence, a little social media, so take a wander over to their Facebook page and give us a like so we can start sharing  a little content with you.

Last weekend to catch the adventures of Abby is Cahoots’ production of Sister Mary’s a Dyke?! over at the Aki Studios. Off you go!

Wandering around Facebook the other day (like you do) and a friend had posted this amazing article – Creative People Say No.  Love this:

Time is the raw material of creation. Wipe away the magic and myth of creating and all that remains is work: the work of becoming expert through study and practice, the work of finding solutions to problems and problems with those solutions, the work of trial and error, the work of thinking and perfecting, the work of creating. Creating consumes. It is all day, every day. It knows neither weekends nor vacations. It is not when we feel like it. It is habit, compulsion, obsession, vocation. The common thread that links creators is how they spend their time. No matter what you read, no matter what they claim, nearly all creators spend nearly all their time on the work of creation. There are few overnight successes and many up-all-night successes.

I’m out of the office next week so rather than leave you blog-post-less, I’ve combed the archives for useful posts people really liked at the time and those will be going up instead – enjoy!
