I realize I should have written this a LONG time ago since the showcase was more than 2 months ago but it's better late than never. If you've been keeping track you would have seen that I was excited and a little nervous about this showcase which featured a ton of amazing artists and I was worried I would look like a newbie putz but I did just fine.
There was hoop dancing, rapping, popping, pun rock and little ole me at the RAW Artists Showcase in Madison WI on June 20th - http://www.rawartists.org/madison I picked a spot for my display near the stage so that I would be sure to see all of the amazing stage performers and I was glad I did. Some of my favorite artists included:
Mr Popper: http://www.rawartists.org/http-www-youtube-com-user-84batson
Pincushion Doll: http://www.rawartists.org/pincushiondoll
Dana Perry: http://www.rawartists.org/musicbydana
It was kind of fun to get all dressed up in cocktail attire.
I made a fun set of jewelry to match my dress.
Then had a crazy day of setting up, doing a film interview and having my picture taken before the show started at 6 pm.
Here is the link to the video:
Watching the performance artists and meeting a ton of people was a blast but when the show ended at midnight I was exhausted!
I packed up as fast as possible then went to a friends house for the night. The show was in Madison and I work in Madison but live 45 minutes away. We were having a team building day at a ropes course the next day so I didn't want to take the day off so I stayed with a friend in Madison so I wouldn't have to drive.
The next day I got up to POURING rain. I went to the ropes course and we played a few team building games but weren't able to climb the ropes course because of thunder and lightning. So I went home and slept the afternoon away instead.
