Final show. And it is damn hot here. Adilade was a bit easier on us hand catastrophe wise (and now that the show is over I can say that without jinxing our show). Well I’m lying a little here but our visions of the hand toppling over into the audience as it was firing were only fantasies after some genius rigging work from Charlie. (The crane operator from Sydney did in some of the Hands structural integrity but as said before it is hard to keep a Lotus Girl down. And besides there is some great work to do when we get home). Adilade as a venue was easy, great site promoters kept it flowing. And there were pinball machines again, and wild animals (not the crowd, but real Australia wildlife for us to interact with).
The shows went well, JDV finally got to work some magic at the buttons, while Oona was working the tanks with Poon. The final show got cut a little short. The show promoters kept the lights off only while their was no less than 5 secs between blast, and a little fire on the hand let them turn the lights on (but in all the shows that is the first fire we have had, the funky kerosene in Adilade was hard to predict how to mix up properly). We wanted to go out in a blaze of glory but went out in a cloud of CO2. The shows defiantly got better by the end garnering the complements of both show promoters. One promoter Vivian said after seeing the Hand in Melbourne “Now that is true rock n’ roll.” We hope we have done all of you Girls back home proud. It was hard not to have a whole swarm of us here together, but we hope doing the work we did here will provide more opportunities for all of us to show our work around the world.
