First stop on THIS Ens. Wimmera tour, Watford House, Avoca.
I found the socialising and performing co-emerging in a very easy manner. Some guests indeed found their way to contributing to the performative energies by singing, reciting poetry, or wandering through the bushy environs. It was a very gentle time that drew a particular expression of energy from the environment, guests and performers.
The next day I helped a man cut down a tree that needed to be removed from next to the house. It felt somewhat like a continuation of the previous nights event, enhanced by the lunch and returning guests comments on how enjoyable their experience was.
Gratitude to co-performer/host Lyndal Jones who made it an auspiciously rich occasion.
