We're here in Barrow again doing some more auditions during Qitik. (If you don't know what Qitik's basically several days/nights of games and competitions where everyone gets together and hangs out for fun and prizes during the holidays. Some of the games are for laughs, some are very athletic and difficult like Alaska high kick, one foot high kick and two foot high kick. We don't have any video of them, but if you search any of those names on YouTube there are a bunch.)

We've had a great turnout and we're looking forward to our call-backs tonight. Then we're heading back down to Anchorage for more open-call auditions on the 2nd and 3rd at the International Gallery of Contemporary Art (4:30-8:30pm each night).

We're hoping to grab an hour or so to get out and get some more photos, but in the meantime we've taken a few here and there. This is a fairly random selection of what we've been doing the past several days...
