Street theatre festival

Tonight was the first night of our local street theatre festival which occurs annually. I try to go see at least one show each year. This time, I was able to see 5 shows already. Of the 5, I really liked the first, a synchronized performance of two “supermarket cashiers”, and the last, a combination of tango and fire. I least enjoyed the improv show and found interesting the street performance (4 people dressed in black with yellow lines, literally performing as a moving street), and the orchestra of crows which you can see a bit in this low quality photo:

And inspired by tonight’s shows, I made this really quick drawing in less than 5 minutes.

After a long day of meeting after meeting at work and 3 hours of watching street theatre, I’m too tired to do anything more. So good night and thanks for visiting.

This is my contribution to CeeCee’s colour challenge. I had a hard time finding similar colours to those posted but eventually, it all worked out. Very simple card. It will end up being my aunt’s birthday card.

There’s a festival in Lachine. It started yesterday and ends tomorrow. I went to see one of the many free shows. It was amazing. I’ll see if the photos are good enough to post tomorrow. The act itself consists of clown-type people playing music with drums, bells and other “ringing” instrument and also 3 acrobats. Everyone’s on a metal structure that gets lifted in the air by a mechanical crane and which is lighted and can open up and close in the form of a flower. Very impressive. The group is from France and they’ve been all around the world. Go here to get a glimpse of the structure.

I’m off to bed now. And looking forward to sleeping in…
