I'm hoping to leave for Shanghai today, volcano permitting. Problems with visas and flights made it seem as if I might not be able to go, but everything is back on track now.
I'm performing during May, primarily in the Irish Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo but also in the Ke Center for Contemporary Arts and at the Downstream Garage in Shanghai centre. I'll spend three weeks in Beijing prior to the Shanghai performances rehearsing a new version of Dialogue with Xiao Ke, and I'll also be preparing to perform Match at the Pavilion and an extract of Niche.
I hope to update my blog at some stage but it's likely I won't be able to do that while I'm in China. So watch this space.
