I want to start up my first Matera stay early. In some ways this is forced upon me, by the available dates that I had set aside in October/November (see below) being now claimed for LOTE#3.
Is it possible to become a mini-unMo for two in August? I want to take co-worker/director/actress Sabrina Giampetrone to start work on what can grow to be a wonderful Matera theatre tradition. Aspects of this project were mentioned in my project proposal submitted in April – However, since no one has acknowledged ever seeing this proposal (including Ben?), I provide this link to the unMo blog pages : http://www.unmonastery.eu/blog/?p=12
Since this time the project has increased its definition. Nadia and Andrea have expressed interest and plans are to make this idea grow over the next year. Theatre people are a little secretive and superstitious, but here is the top secret scenario:
Le donne di Matera, da tempo si intendono del valore di un brav’ uomo.
Attraverso i secoli hanno sviluppato un ammirevole know-how tradizionale
per stimare ed aumentare il suo prezzo. Nessuna visita nella Regione
della Basilicata è completa senza fare un salto al Mercato ricco di
colori di Matera quando si riempie di uomini in vendita. Sia che stiate
guardando un modello restaurato, o un fresco modello sportivo, o che stiate
trattando un marito di seconda mano, siate pronti a negoziare fino
Puo’ darsi che torniate con un affarone!
Of course, the issue of male/female relationships was not technically mentioned during our March Community Meet; I expect that this was a minor omission.
My available time is August 4th-24th; I will expect to use my presence to engage in other unMo business during this stay. I would like to get this arranged this week, so as to be able to get cracking with travel arrangements.
