    Book review: The Open Door by Peter Brook

    Review of “The Open Door” by Peter Brook “The Open Door” by Peter Brook is a nonfictional performing arts book about some of the theatre practices Brook and his production teams have encountered, as well as Brooks own thoughts on these. I read “The Open Door” in Danish, so if anything got lost in the translation, I’d be happy to hear from others who’ve read it in English. I will however, review it in English, since I know it’s available in both languages (and others too I assume). “The Open Door” and Peter Brook Peter Brook is sort of well known in my professional circles. If someone I work with…

    Book review: Burlesque or Bust

    Burlesque or Bust by Sapphira I received a review copy of Burlesque or Bust in exchange for an honest review. As I stumbled upon Sapphira’s post in a group about her new book, Burlesque or Bust, about her personal journey with tackling mental health through burlesque, I was immediately intrigued. Having been in the burlesque scene for a couple of years so far, (the first year didn’t really count), I am aware that a lot of artists in the glittery environment, have their struggles. Both physically, financially and mentally. There is no shame in that, as I see it. So I welcomed her book and offered to read and review…

    Book review: The Comedy of Errors

    The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare The Comedy of Errors is a Shakespearean classic and here are my thoughts of it. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a book review as it is a play of a certain age. But as a part of the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge, and me being a thespian, I just had to read it! Summary In short, The Comedy of Errors is a typical twin-comedy-drama and very Shakespeare. Two sets of twins are separated by a heinous storm. Two of them end up in one place, the other two somewhere else and herein lies the premise of our plot. The pairs of twins then…

    Artist Residency – hvad er det?

    Hvad er et artist residency? Som udøvende kunstner findes der uendeligt mange tilbud om kurser, workshops, coaching og uddannelser, som man kan gøre brug af for at dygtiggøre sig. Et af de måske knapt så kendte tilbud til kunstnere er ”Artist Residencies”. (Hvis du allerede kender til residency-fænomenet behøver du nok ikke læse dette indlæg da det primært er henvendt til dem der endnu ikke har stiftet bekendtskab med det 😊 ) ”Artist Residencies” er et tilbud om et ophold et eller andet sted i verden. Her kan man få arbejdsro, sparring, nyt netværk eller inspiration til nye værker. Nogle gange skal man selv betale for rejsen og mad mens…

    Bookreview: “The Best Burlesque Sketches”

    As you might know, one of my passions is Burlesque as performing arts (I run Cabaresque as a part time adventure on top of my dayjob). I found myself without any actual, proper knowledge of the subject, other than having watched the movie with Cher and Christina. I figured I would need to expand my awareness a bit and thus I invested in a few books on Burlesque. “The Best Burlesque Sketches – as adapted for Sugar Babies and other Entertainments” by Ralph Allen, is one of the books I found, and here is my review of it – enjoy! Genre: Nonfiction piece/history/collection of dramatic works Okay, so I’m not quite…
