Training and more
First things first – For the ‘Amsterdammertje van het jaar’ (little Amsterdammer of the year) competition I was asked to narrate the announcement video of the nominees. I hope to come with an official voice-over reel soon now that I’ve gotten some recordings under my belt.
What I’m more excited about, though, are a few new initiatives set in motion that will help a lot of people to keep training their crafts even when the opportunities to do so are scarce. In January I started with both an Actor’s Lab and a Writer’s Lab – both under the supervision of the team at Orange Tea – and last week I got to work at a film lab of sorts with the Schrijver siblings in which we made a short film about two tough young men in the dressing room before it is revealed they are dressing up as drag queens.
I also auditioned for a new stage production to be put up this July – it’s called Borderlands and is written by Mona Z. Smith. I’ll be playing the character of Marko, a soldier with a secret, among two other ensemble characters.
