A Whistle Stop Tour of Europe and Coffee Making Sieves: Monday 31st October

This afternoon marked the second in the series of my ‘Dramatic Communication’ lectures, for which 16 out of last week’s 23 turned up. The addition of another couple of new students meant that the drop off rate was definitely acceptable, and the energy with which the students approached today’s lesson was commendable. Their presentations were also excellent, even if one student had slightly misunderstood my instructions of ’10 slides each 20 seconds in length’, and instead treated the rest of the group to a 10 slide whistle stop tour of Europe in under 20 seconds.

Poetry in Motion.

After today’s lesson my fellow teachers and I went for dinner at a nearby Izakaya. The food was wonderful, and the owner was incredibly friendly and attentive. In fact he was so accommodating that even though he had no steamer he made me an exquisite café latte from scratch using only a pan and, bizarrely, a sieve, although I am quite certain he is now regretting the decision to ask me if I would care for a coffee.
