On the Edge : Theatre || Vol. 5

A few weeks ago, word on a new show by Proud and Loud Arts snuck its way onto my screen and stayed long enough for me to read it twice. I had never heard of Proud and Loud Arts - a theatre company that works with performers who live with disabilities - before but I am glad I have now as this new show, a contemporary version of Pyramus and Thisbe, has caught the strap of my intrigue bag and is subtly tugging at it. Theatre is definitely making its voice heard around these parts and I am not complaining at all.

Read It Or Not: Places I Stopped on the Way Home || Meg Fee

*  *  *  *

Edit: I wrote and scheduled this post before the devastating events in Beirut, Paris and other parts of the world. The right words to convey my thoughts about the attacks have not yet found me but my heart and prayers goes out to all those affected by the attacks.

My relationship with novels, books - whatever you want to call them - has been tested to put things mildly. I know I am not the only one who has experienced this phase in their partnership with reading but I think I am done playing hard to get (... for now at least). Read it or Not is a series on this blog where I share with you the written worlds I am currently getting lost in so that maybe, when the time is right for you, you can come join me and the creators of those worlds. Today, I bring you Meg Fee's 'Places I Stopped on the Way Home'.

And that's My Story: Ronkẹ Adekoluẹjo, Actress

I have been intrigued to find out more about the creators behind projects that I have been fortunate enough to see and/ or hear for a long time now so I've decided to do something about it. And That's My Story is a series on this blog that shares with you a bit about the creators and talent I've met along the way and their journey towards fulfilling their dreams; it will run for as long as I can find people who are willing to share their story. Today, I would like to introduce you to the hilarious and down-to-earth Ronkẹ Adekoluẹjo who is currently part of HOME's production of The Oresteia.

Ronke was the last cast member that I got to speak to and chatting with her was a great way to wrap up the preview event of The Oresteia. The girl was so full of energy, completely affable and had me laughing almost non-stop. In this interview we get to know a little more about the actress who stars as the leader of the female chorus in HOME's production of The Oresteia and also makes an appearance in the hit show, Chewing Gum.
