Hey folks, something a little different for today.
This past Sunday I gave a presentation on “devised” theater for Directors Gathering. As I sat down to prep for the evening, I realized that for so much of my career I’ve defined my work (or had it defined for me) as a series of oppositions. My work tends not to exist in a traditional space. It tends not to take a linear form. It tends not to let the audience sit back and passively observe.
As I started trying to describe this “style” of work I kept asking myself, rather than thinking about what it isn’t can I articulate was it is?
The short answer is yes, I can.
And because I was so pleased with the reply that I found in answer to that question, I thought it would be worth sharing with you.
