Summer Bucket List

From My Summer Sunset Watch

For the past few months, life has been a whirlwind. But then it always is, especially with a life in the arts. I am happy to say that Treehouse Shakers finished our NYC season, tours, our BAM PDP, and tied up our school residencies. We held our annual benefit and celebrated 18 years of making work.

My daughter performed her dance recital, finished school, and celebrated her birthday (a small production unto itself.) Mixed into that was my birthday, Father's Day, our wedding anniversary, Mother's Day, and a trip to Montreal for IPAY's (International Performing Arts for Youth) annual board meeting.

So now that summer is actually here. I am ready for the summer life. I am ready to truly repair.

Treehouse has an exhilarating Fall ahead. We have performances of Hatched scheduled at the Historic Flushing Town Hall, as well as Under the Tangle at both Queens Theatre in the Park and BMCC's Tribeca Performing Arts Center in Manhattan. We have numerous school residencies, a space grant with Flushing Town Hall to begin work on our very newest piece, and lots of special events to host our performances at BAM Fisher in January. I am thankful for the work, and the wonderful support of the Treehouse Shakers' family.

For today though, I am ready to cross off another To Do on my Summer Bucket List.
