Phaethon and Helios

My friend Emily has has asked me to write and memorize a piece about Phaethon and Helios for SpiritFire.

To summarize, I’ve now done…

Judgment of Paris
Oedipus Noir
Showdown at the Acropolis
Athena and Arachne
Midas the King
Cupid and Psyche
Six Minute Iliad (the weakest of the bunch)
and two others that escape my memory but I’m too lazy to go look up.

I might have enough to do an hour-long show, . Trouble is, I need to memorize most of ’em.

  1. Dude…

    …I’ll totally help you with the Illiad bit.

    I’m sure what with the Troy movie and everything people will be all “oooh! Brad Pitt’s body double!” Fine, but these people will be in for a rude awakening when they see the grinding tedium and disquieting pedophilla of Achillies that *is* the Trojan War.

    “Homer…the Illiad….READ A BOOK!”

  3. hey, I have changed the way I am going to the solo theater night. I am breaking the night up into three thirty minute blocks. You can do 30, 60 or 90 minutes. And then we can match your piece with others to make a full evening. So if you feel better with a 30, we can do that. Or we can schedule you for the second or third night to give you time to make it 60, let me know.
