Martinique Tour rehearsals (V): Spring has hit Stockholm

Hi again! The weekend is over and i´m back behind the screen. My policy is to not blog during the weekends and to give my readers the rest they deserve from their screens. A computer is a time stealer, never forget that. The real life is outside your door. But as I said, i´m back on track and this first post after this weekend is about stage clothes.

Helena and I have been wondering what to wear on stage for quite some time now. I had an idea of what could work for me and back home I bought the bottom half of my stage clothes. I´ve been searching in Stockholm for the right thing to have on top but with no luck. Everything either felt too much or too varm. But this weekend we tock a stroll on the streets in Söder and we both hit the jackpot. I will not say what we found cause that would be to spoil the surprise for you. But I can tell you that one of the colours I will be wearing is white. What I found this weekend is in a bag and I hope it will do the job.

It´s true and it´s lovely. The sun is shining and Mr X has taken off his bear suit and is right now sleeping outdoors in his pram. People have taken over the streets and are sitting on the asphalt eating ice cream! We tried it and it felt great but after a while there were too much people. The ice cream was nice. Flowers are saying hi to each other and the bumblebee is diving into them. Spring.

The Martiniquemusic blog is proud to give you the first ever interview with the Swedish/American film director Damian Petherson II. In this exclusive interview he talks about his latest creation “The Bear & the Cat” short movies. The funny thing is that he looks a bit like me even though he is his own and unique and has a different set of parents than me. Here you go, only on Martiniquemusic:

Hej!) I was always wondering how you choose and how you buy clothes for the performance. I thought you make a special order for it, or even buy from abroad… Never though you just buy it in a local mall…)))))) By the way, do you and Helena keep all the clothes you used during the tour? Do you use them sometimes after the tour – for going out or something? Thanks. Have a splendid week!!))

Hej! Well sometimes you buy them yourself from a shop, sometimes you make them yourself along with a designer or sometimes you get sponered by a brand to use their clothes during a tour (see upcoming post..) We keep the clothes and some of them we use when not performing too. It depends however, we couldn´t go out in any Sandy Mouche outfits since they are specially made for the stage and it would look like you´d escaped from a circus if you hit the streets with them.
