The Activist wrote me back to reassure me that she is still feeling positive about the project and is more than willing to keep helping out. Right now, I am putting 100% of my interest into meeting with Sankai Juku and the National Theater in the next two weeks.
The first step is that I am going to see their show in Chiba tomorrow, but I have not been able to get in contact with them through their publicist…maybe because my writing in Japanese is terrible. I would like to meet with the performers before or after the show, even for just 5 minutes to introduce myself an explain the possibility of a collaboration.
The Rocker has an old friend who used to work with them – I’m hoping that that might be a connection that I could use to possibly get to meet them.
