Last night Scott and I had the immense privilege of witnessing Heart’Heart, one of six sold-out Auckland Art Festival performances from the musical group From Scratch.
This Radio New Zealand video includes the first part of my favorite piece of the evening:
I really appreciate all the things that other people’s sharing of their creativity brings out in my own! Some things that have come up for me, both during and since the show:
- What a joy it is to be part of something larger than ourselves! (I felt that vicariously through their performance.)
- It is such a treat to witness the magic that occurs as the result of both individual mastery at a craft, and dedicated practice as a group.
- Thank goodness there are institutions that fund exhibitions+performances such as this (egad, I can’t imagine trying to fund such a thing)!
- While I’m excited to be putting myself out there with the vlog, I do have a sense that I need to further hone my skills so I package up my own work in a way that will make me truly proud. Working on it 🙂
From Scratch has played all over the world, though I’m not sure how much they’re touring these days? If you have a chance to see them, I hope you will!
