What do you or your DP do for a living in your country of residence?
Did your or DP's job bring you there or did something else cause you to move?
My husband is a theater director and educator. We were unsatisfied with work/lifestyle where we were in the States and I was game to give it a go and after seeing he had a couple of positive guest directing experiences here (he is Peruvian and started his theater career here). We finally made the move when he had another guest directing gig and knew, through a colleague, that there would probably be a place for him at the University theater school he used to head up. It was a bit of a gamble, but we took the risk and it worked.
He came in as co-director of the program as a transition and a year later, took over as general director of the school, which is also a professional theater production company. He also directs professionally.
I am an actress, singer and dancer. The first few years I spent learning the language and then we had DS. When DS was old enough and I was "with it" enough (and proficient enough in Spanish), I performed in my first production here. Now I´m at home again with the little guy, but have another show scheduled for the beginning of next year and one the next, as well. I might start teaching in the theater school next year, also. so, little by little for me integrating into the theater community here, but I have also been very happy to have the time at home with our son - especially these first years.
