This is my first wordpress.com blog.
It’s going to be more arts-based than my Everest Blog and possibly updated more frequently. I have one more update on http://jamiezubairi.blogspot.com before I migrate it across or close it down entirely, that will be on Kathmandu and the aftermath of the Nokia Everest Test 2009 which was a life-changing experience. Nearly 8 months after the fact and I’m still feeling the changes and noticing the changes. They have affected my work and the way I look at life. This is my new blog.
Why wordpress? I have no idea why, I just felt like a change. I’m trying it out. It feels slightly better, user friendly, more professional.
Well, it’s the name of my first play and it’s also the name of my method of working. Skylarking as a method was borne out of workshops with Paul Oertel (though not forgetting the important input by his wife Nancy Spanier) and they are both Performance Inventions and amazing performers and facilitators. Of course, I wouldn’t have gone on this course if it wasn’t for the encouragement of the wonderful Kath Burlinson and of my friend Andi Hall who put the seeds into my head about re-finding my artistic self. More about this later when I have a little more time
