What the f*^% happened to me! Hackney Wick!

May 30, 2017

 

Pruning roses, making vegetable stock, building structures with bamboo ! Whaaaaat?

Recently i had to move, and ended up with a little house in hackney wick. It has a garden, parking and a spare room. My mother designed the garden 10 years ago. Its real pretty with Japanese maples, roses and a cute Summer house / cabin.

It is not a shed!

However, i can not for the life of me find a housemate! And i can’t afford not to have one. My friend MD suggested Airbnb, and Wow! It’s all gone amazingly well.

Three were booked for my spare room. 4 turned up. The summer house became a beautiful cabin with double bed, shelves and storage.

It is not a shed.

Everyone was happy, i think!

Now i rent out the spare room and the cabin to some really lovely people. All are allowed free roam of the main house of course.

All the doors in the road are black. I had to go pink!

That’s the garden and cabin, which is now also pink.

Feels like my financial woes are over. For now. In getting the house ready for guests, i have become addicted to Amazon Prime.

First it was important things i needed immediately. Mattresses, quilts, antique indian bowls… they would arrive the next day.

Now it’s lampshades handmade from kimono silk, lace effect waterproof table cloths, jewel like drawer handles, cherub sculptures… !

Vegan Update:

Yes i am still vegan, although there was an incident with a slab of mature cheddar and an anchovy!

Off to my favourite city Venice in two weeks, with two amazing new friends from the Dalston Ballet crew. Gonna check out the biennale, do a bit of dancing and filming, and drink Campari from dawn til dusk! Heaven.

This is from a recent performance with the lovely qila and ariella, those friends i mentioned!

New song for Dalston Ballet coming soon!

The Chanteuse

 

Wandering star

I never talk about my bad traits

glamour from a Gilda age

jewel personalities,

London calling

mix and match of the day

beyond the beach

Switzerland without skis

the demolition man

unsteady odyssey

street of shame

human capital

every breath you take defensive

behaviour odd to ominous

not just another maestro

an artist finds his groove

folk of ages

avant-garde explosion

pay up, pay up and play the game

let the field of the mind fall fallow

please hang up and try again.

@DalstonBallet – @HackneyShowroom #Contemporary #dance #performance #art with visiting associate artists programme @houseofodwyer

April 25, 2017

Love working with the Dalston Ballet. Currently wearing many hats; Choreographer, stylist, libretto, dresser, special effects, film editor… and now performer!

I performed the role of ‘Artist’ in Dalston Ballet’s contemporary dance performance art work at Hackney Showroom early in April.

I shot this video while doing it, which means it must be Art! It also means you dont see me at work!

 

 

 

This video of Artist’s studio shows just one of four works we performed that night including:

Principessa

Bleed in Bleed Out

Marine

Everything went to plan, mostly.

Hope to take it to more venues this year.
