Designing a costume is a long process which requires a lot of research and thought. For After the Quake, Sheila White compiled mood boards for each of the main characters in the show. Have a look!
after the quake is already getting a great response, and we’re 3 weeks from opening! Check out CBC’s interview with Richard Wolfe “Murakami’s Super-Frog to appear on Vancouver stage“, the Vancouver Observer, and Julie Burtinshaw’s blog.
The story of Frog, a giant creature who must battle the evil Worm that lives beneath a Tokyo bank tower, is shot through with humour, including the witty dialogue for which Murakami is famous.
The contest is now closed. @donforan is the winner, with the following haiku:
In the wake of disaster
Life after the Quake
Congratulations to @donforan, and thanks to everyone else who entered! We got some great entries — here are some of the runner ups:
The earth can move you
in some very special ways.
You must work with her!
Life after the quake.
Can super frog save
Rumble and grumble.
She stumbles from her slumber.
This morning she roars.
Lost or forgotten
Memories of the earthquake
Conjured the great Frog
Remember: a haiku is three phrases of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively.
We’ll read all the haikus, and DM the winner with info about how to reserve tickets.
