blasting off for Tromsø (Weds)

Well, I'm off to Tromsø today...will land there midday Thurs. Am traveling solo again this year as the fest coincides with the first week of school here.

Latest news:
  • the two school programs in Norway for Monday 9/10 won't be happening...no school that day because of municipal elections. Stay tuned to find out what I wind up doing that day.
  • Have just booked three Immigrant daytime shows for school groups at AMMI for the fall, and more will undoubtedly trickle in as area schools plan their field trips, and...
  • Have also had emails and talks with the second annual NY Clown Theater Festival, and I will undoubtedly present a talk/clips program on silent screen comedy there in October (again).
  • am in the process of solidifying a date in Oct for a Halloween show at a big church in NYC of Hunchback of Notre Dame; doing this one with Bruce Lawton...
  • no listing on Kino.com for the Houdini DVD set, which I thought was coming out this month. Will get update and post again with details.
It's 25º (F) colder in Tromsø...need to go dig out hat, gloves and scarf...!
