Mo Tita @ The MACC

Posted by delta on 19th November 2007

I ran Cathy Collins Show in the McCoy from the 16th-18th (audio,video, and lighting). She’s a great local comedian/story teller here on the islands – and a great person – so it’s always great to work with her. Of course, she isn’t skimpy on the chocolate as gifts – so, BONUS!

Cirque Eloize: Rain @ The MACC

Posted by delta on 14th November 2007

Was on the rail with Dave C (one of my favorite people) from the 8th to the 13th. This show was cool.

I think we actually had the A or B team on this one, cause they were all really good performers – and their riggers were on it!

The best part? It actually rained on the stage! I won’t tell you how we did it, but “Yes boys and girls! It was real water!”

More double-dippage

Posted by delta on 7th November 2007

From Nov 1st – 6th, I’ve double dipped everyday. Basically been running between the MACC (Hawaiian Story Telling Fest on the 3rd and a private movie screening last night that I can’t discuss), the Grand Wailea (a corporate gig that I can’t write about), and the Four Seasons (another corporate gig that I can’t write about). Today’s my first day off in a while, so I’m gonna sleep instead of write – been doing 20 hour days…

I have CIRQUE ELOIZE: RAIN starting up tomorrow, and running till the 13th; I also have KATHY COLLINS: MO’ TITA going from the 16th-18th – should be a fun few weeks…
