The last time I wrote, my post was regarding the anticipation of heading into the stage rehearsals.
That was two months ago now, and I haven’t written since.
Having always said I wanted to experience this Kynren project from a fresh pair of eyes each year, and to see this show from a completely different perspective each time.
Since the very first stage rehearsal, to full dress rehearsal, and then last night to full show conditions including pyrotechnics, it’s only really now that I feel as though I can write this update, as quite frankly where do you really start?
Since the very start of our rehearsals, which feel like a long time ago, because they were.
The many months that each cast and crew member has put in, to listen, to learn, to practice, and practice and practice some more.
Repetition after repetition to know your choreography, to understand the music for your cues on entering and exiting the stage, to appreciate how your roles link into the overall picture of what each visitor will see on a summer’s evening is now something for me to behold.
As each rehearsal has come and gone, my ability to pick up each choreographic scene has taken time, for me it’s about a process, I’m self confessed not a quick learner, especially when I experience new things that are a complete unknown to me.
But one thing I have always focused on was the belief.
That belief is not only your training, which has been exceptional since day one.
But it’s been your teammates, the cast members, the people that stand beside you in each scene.
There’s people that you know, and there’s still hundreds of faces who you are seeing for only the very first time.
Some are new.
Some are seasoned professionals and have been here since day one, going back unbelievable three years ago now.
For me, I take inspiration from them all, every single person that has performed on that stage, who has been there, in exactly the same position I’m in, and now about to experience for myself.
The confidence I now take into each performance, I take with vigor knowing that I’m in the best company possible to perform on the greatest stage.
What can anyone possibly say who has seen it?
Who has experienced from each different set of eyes?
And just leaves you lost for words, with an overwhelming proudness.
For all the visitors who have booked their tickets and counting down the days to visit our show, whether it’s your very first time or you return each year, your in for a feast of entertainment that your eyes won’t know where to look.
Kynren is exceptional.
There is a real buzz flowing through the volunteers, we are ready, and ready to welcome you with wide smiles from the experience team and deliver a live performance that will live long in your memories until the end of time.
We can’t wait to meet you!
Kynren’s first show of seventeen live performances this summer takes place on Saturday 30th June.
