We kicked off our dancing shoes over the opening weekend with our first company night on Saturday, Many of our hard working artists arrived to let their hair down and dance the night away. With the music pumping, we had the boys from Black Watch showing off their Scottish reels, Coisceim showing people why they are one of our top dance companies and everyone throwing shapes and moves late into the night. Sunday was a more subdued affair as we toasted goodbye to the hard working and talented cast and crew of ‘Gatz’ and ‘England’ and ‘Between The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea’.
The festivities carried on through the week, with our Friends of the Festival on Monday, eager to meet one another and discuss all they had seen over opening weekend and to compare notes about what they had left to see. On Wednesday we had another company night which meant more dancing and late night madness! This past weekend brought our busiest nights so far, with the majority of companies in town, either with shows up and running or preparing to kick off for this week.
So, if you have not made it to the Odessa yet, be sure not to miss out this week! I expect that we will be busy again so arrive early in the night to guarantee entry and to be part of the unofficial theatrics of the festival that only occur after hours and behind the closed doors of the Odessa!
