The advance team of Tink & Tod arrived in Mae Sot from Japan this week. It’s a whirlwind of unpacking all of our stored costumes and props, doing laundry (spread out on the lawn as seen above), meeting with schools, preparing schedules and re-orienting to the city.
A lot has changed since Tink was here in 2013: new cafes, a huge DIY shop, new schools, new faces! Many familiar landmarks, eateries, and favorite market stalls are still standing. One thing that definitely remains the same is all the happy smiles and good memories people are sharing about their Spark experiences over the past decade.
The rest of the team arrives next week and then the real fun begins with rehearsals before our first show on January 16th.
Thank you for all of your support in getting the 2016 tour off the ground. And thank you to all of our Mae Sot friends for your help in the coming weeks.
