A lady explorer, exploring new lands and customs
The girl who idolizes her, exploring her imagination
Two teenagers, exploring the limits of their own bodies.
A housewife, exploring the cost of personal happiness
A perpetual student, constantly re-exploring her own life.
And a young nun, exploring the possibilities of her dreams
Let us know what you think!

Now that you can officially buy tickets to our show (check it: http://www.livearts-fringe.org/details.cfm?id=13260), I thought it might be good to update all of you faithful readers about how rehearsals are going and what the next steps in our process are. We are all a little giddy with excitement because we’re at a major turning point in the development of Cartogoraphasia.
Many long rehearsals, brainstorming sessions, interrogations of possible characters, and baked goods later, we have determined that Cartogoraphasia will be a celebration of explorers. The beloved characters we are featuring in our piece, however, are not typical explorers. Some of them explore the world, some of them explore their bodies, some of them explore their brains. Some use maps and some can’t read them. Some cross rivers and mountains and others exist solely in their living rooms. Some characters are exploring their sexuality, others are exploring their faith. Some characters are exploring the past, and others creating new realities for themselves every minute. They all have something they are trying to gain through exploring, and having to explore to find it is not always a voluntary act. We are looking forward to developing, discovering, and, eventually, sharing these explorers with you at their most intrepid moments.
I can’t wait for our next rehearsal.
Thanks for reading.
