Flying Through the Air Like Invisible Frisbees

Fri, 05/10/2013 - 17:04 -- rprice

The title of this post is a quote from Brad Kuhn, the author of an article about Craig Ustler, the Creative Village, and Urban ReThink. I found the line so nonsensically entertaining that I decided my next endeavor would pay homage to his coined phrase. The invisible frisbee in his article was referring to e-commerce. Is there any commerce today that is not e-commerce on some level?

Anyway, I took the phrase and eventually made it my own. For me the Invisible Frisbee is inspiration. The way that it gets passed along, often unintentionally.

I have not posted on this blog since November because I've been a busy beaver, working on my first-ever theatrical production, an improvised show based on the book The 39 Steps.

The idea came to me when two slow hunches rubbed against each other (to use Stephen Johnson's phraseology) to form a new baby, the semi-scripted, semi-improvised version of this classic spy story, where we have a different lead actor every night, and Richard Hannay's journey takes him to a different place for the same unknown reason - chasing the MacGuffin.

I have been documenting this process in some detail in two places:

If you follow me on social media, you may have seen either or both of these mentioned. We have recorded a new episode of BATT IDEAS that should be coming out any day now that I'm sure goes toward a similar end.

If you're near Orlando in the last 2 weeks of May, I highly encourage you to attend as much of the Orlando Fringe Festival as you can. Specifically, my show, The 39 Steps is playing seven times throughout the fesival, we are having a Florida Creatives Happy Hour Wednesday May 22nd, and I will be participating in a Pecha Kucha Night during Fringe on Thursday May 23rd.
