Lori Hamilton is Developing the Soundtrack for NORTH STAR, Set to Debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival
virus has cancelled performances and rehearsals across the globe, but the show goes on for Lori Hamilton, who is currently developing the soundtrack for her fifth one-woman show North Star, which will debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August.
The nature of a one-woman show is perfectly suited for our new reality of socially distancing ourselves. Lori feels compelled to continue with her plans to record her soundtrack and keep out of work theater artists and musicians working during this time, albeit in one-on-one or very small groups.
Lori says, "As a performer, I have to keep working, practicing and rehearsing my show despite the virus situation. So far this week, I have done a voice lesson, Alexander technique session and workout with my trainer ALL on video chat."
