where the wild things are...

the wilderness

I once saw a show called the confessions of brother wormwood. It had a tiny circular stage and I didn't have much hope for it really. When it started I soon realised it was brilliant, the one thing that really stuck out about it, and still does 6 years on, is that the tiny stage was a revolving one! it was spilt into sections and was turned manually by the actors from scene to scene. It was simple but effective, and obiously memorable.
The reason I bring it up is not mearly for a trip down memory lane but that those small round summer houses that were in the 'wilderness' reminded me of that show. I thought it might be brillaint if we could do something like that at Ham House. Might take some work, but looking at photos of last years shananigans I think it could be possible.
But as always its just an idea and not a fully developed one!

Trying to tighten up the moving statues/ paintings idea. I think I could get to obsessed with it. Have to remember its not the only idea out there and certainly not the only one with potential. But for now I am stuck.
So, another idea on this subject to throw out there- the paintings not only talking to the visitors but to each other?
It goes on...

First blog in three weeks. Not a great start but better late then never.
Trying to figure out how to find people and follow their blogs is going to be testing...but for now i shall talk to myself.

Anyway, ever since people got freaked out by the cardboard cut outs of servants at Ham House I can't get out of my mind the idea of moving statues. Its just a thought, but maybe they could lead families around the house? Taking them from story to story?
Could be moving paintings even, a bit Harry Potter-esque...possibly.
