A few quick thoughts about the SAA this year in Toronto, ON.
- Apparently the pathway to career success is to knock down Stephen Orgel in the hallways. I really hope he didn’t get too many bruises over the course of the conference.
- Tiffany Stern is right – sometimes you just need to see an image in the middle of a talk.
- Now, via twitter, you can be in one session and find out what is going on in the session three doors down.
- And you can be tweeting to someone who is actually sitting right beside you without realizing it.
- Severed head props were probably individualized for an individual actor… portraits too?
- “I’ll grant your argument, but I’m right” – Roz Knutson paraphrasing (correctly) another member of the Lost Plays panel.
- And on that thought – “This play’s not lost… it’s just a bit sick.”
- Breast milk is probably the ultimate food for a localvore… well, OK, CANNIBALISM is the ultimate food for a localvore, but that’s just so Titus.
- Somehow I ended the Malone Society Dance with the tambourine.
- Also – Conga line!
- Multiple versions of the Willow song, Full Fathom Five, and more as sung by the Musicians in Ordinary. What a fantastic experience!
- Will someone please explain to me the ontological status of the hymen? Now I’m confused.
- After the talk on Vortigern by William Henry Ireland, I wish that Arden Early Modern would do an edition of it, with full apparatus. Just because it is really BAD (and a forgery) doesn’t mean we shouldn’t give it due attention.
