Quick sketch of ideas for puppet, costume, movement, The Betes

I’ve been in fear the past 48 hours… But it’s because we – Deborah Kaufmann and I- are starting to enter the Real work of The Betes.

The real work is to fearlessly dig into these painful, terrifying places that diabetes holds and creates so that we can collectively work through the demons that the ‘Betes carries with it.

That’s the job of the artist. That’s my role. That’s the work. And my mind has been manifesting endless demons to get me to avoid it.

I know better. I know better now.

“Don’t confront the scary things.” “Avoid them”

Hell NO.

We’re going to dig right into them and come out on the other side.
