it really pisses me off how people who are good at maths/science/history/etc are seen as the intelligent ones and will go far in life but also seen as the “boring” ones, but writers and artistic/creative people are seen as the interesting and talented ones but also unintelligent and doomed to be unsuccessful like shit bro how the fuck do any of us win
You do what you love and nothing else matters. :)
A selection of sets from The Tempest
The current show at Riverside Theatre in Iowa City is Coming of Age in Chore Boots, a one-woman autobiographical show by local artist Janet Schlapkohl. It has been enormously popular, and is a wonderfully funny and poignant performance.
This show has been mostly done in-house, as it were. Drew Bielinski, our resident Master Electrician, designed lights, and I designed and built a simple set. Janet Schlapkohl is sort of her own production unit, providing her own costumes and props, and even some surplus metal siding.
Response to the show has been positive and enthusiastic. Bits of it are directed towards the set, about which I could not be happier.
