NEITHER - a "Premiere" Party Night

On Saturday the jury attended the premiere of Neither, a production by Castellucci to the opera created by Morton Feldman and Samuel Beckett.

Damian Rebgetz, host for the upcoming CCA Awards Ceremony, joined us from Berlin! I think this photo sets the tone for the night...

Here's V-IP Ken in the car

Ken snuck in while I was out

Here we go, on our drive up to the red carpet at the Jahrhunderthalle....

and here we are in the lobby!

AND... (post-show)... here it is, the amputated leg. Best prop ever?

We talked to Romeo Castellucci again--the kids had a TON of questions about how the set, the props, how the lights worked--and he graciously answered them all. He even remembered Ken from the selfie he took of them together a couple weeks ago!

THEN we got a little stage tour around the giant train used in the performance. AHHH soo cool!!!

After evaluating the show, we made our way to the place where VIP's should be--the premiere party!! We drank coke and sat at the bar, and met Pascal, a former CCA jury member who was an extra on stage!! The black fingernails were a giveaway - 

such cool guys and gals

sugar highs for the ride home--I hope the jury (and their parents) got some sleep. Good night!!
