Pieta and sewing details

By spotogspindel | December 11, 2015


One of this years theatrical highlights is Pieta at Haugesund Teater. Sitting in the audience of the opening night Thursday I was completely engulfed in Marie´s 90 minute long monologue. Funny, sad, frivolous, serious, food for thought… this story had it all. A brilliant script and a brilliant actor conveying the story.


And the sewing? Well, it´s coming along nicely. Although, take my words of wisdom: do NOT sew in the wrong place. It is almost impossible to unpick these stitches without poking holes in the thin fabric. The soluble fabric helps a bit, but my heart was in my throat for a while there… You can see the unpicking process above. And below… almost done. Now, to get rid of the fiber and see what we´re left with 😀
