I sent my soul to Arts Council Ireland.
All sent, now I just lie in wait, fingers crossed.
I've filed my application and bloody hell there was a lot to write, a lot to think about and a lot of numbers to get together.
Here are some extracts from what I sent out tot hem. Mainly a synopsis and why I thought my show was elegible for a grant. I asked for 8,000 euro... so not too greedy and literally it is just to cover my costs to make the show, promote it and head to Edinburgh and perform it.
Writing this application really made me think about my ego- I'm sick of talking about my own ideas.
To take my mind off so many figures and talking about myself, I decided to do a photoshoot with the wonderful Iban Sarabia http://videofotografia.barcelona/ and then spend hours looking at photos of myself- bloody ego really gets tested when it comes to making a solo show... I am a bit sick of my own face right now... but for those that are not, here are two of my favourites from the shoot last week in the Labyrinth d'Horta in the north of Barcelona. ( a cracking place for people who have not yet been there, 2 euro in and the place is huge.
