Make a bid in the Silent Auction for a painting by Bali 9 member Myuran Suakamaran

The cast and crew were all impressed with the reformation activities going on inside Kerobokan prison, especially the Art Studio and the Tee Shirt Screen Printing activities.

We purchased numerous paintings from Myuran, and have them on display in the foyer at The Bondi Pavilion Theatre bar.
One of the paintings, a self-portrait by Myuran Sukamaran is being auctioned off.

All proceeds of the Auction will be given to The Warden of Kerobokan prison to help fund more art supplies for the studio

We got the canvas painting professionally frames by Cyrils Framing in Cammeray North Sydney

1st run with tunes

Thursday 3rd November 11:27

We did our first full run today without scripts or prompts and with Alon mixing in his score. It was so inspiring to see the guys really start to trust themselves, each other and jam. It’s been a huge week of rehearsal and everyone is pretty dang tired but we all know it’s going to be worth it once we get that set in and the lights come up.

It’s a strange phase of rehearsals, this one, because for me it’s really about letting go. I don’t have children but I imagine it’s like when your they are just about to move out of home – You’ve accepted it and know it’s happening, it’s hard to let go but you know you have to. Not that I’m saying the three burly blokes in the cast are anything like my children. They’re all older than me (I love that) so that would be weird.

I was so pumped tonight to hear Alon’s score supporting the show, it really added that magical element and I think will take our audience to another world or, at the right time, smash them back to reality.

Had a thrilling moment with Anthony Beach today, our video editor. I’m not going to lie, I’ve been fairly concerned about the sound quality of our filmic segments. The night we filmed it was incredibly windy and I didn’t have the benefit/budget of being able to hear sound from the microphone. All I could hear was live action and most of the time, from where I was standing, all I could hear was wind. But today, when I listened to the clips, the sound was clear. I was so thrilled as all the actors we used did such a terrific job and I was dreading asking them in to re-voice.

As I mentioned earlier in this blog, things just seem to be miraculously coming together. I hope all our work gives the audience a powerful experience. And if you haven’t yet please check out the Mercy Campaign.
