This is for you, company.
This morning I will be in the Laban cafe, sculpting the structure. Know that all that matters is the performers. Truly. What else is there? Isn't going to watch something onstage an acknowledgement that we as audience want to understand how the performers feel so we can understand how we feel?
Your energy, your emotional truth. Is all that matters. It is the beginning of the story, the end of the story.
The rest is window dressing.
If you are real in a scene (Kirsty asks Quang, what do you mean 'Real"? Ezekiel thinks "What does real look like?" Quang thinks, what is real is the imaginary box I'm squeezing, and the cigarette I smoke after will also be real") then the scene can come at the beginning, middle or end of the structure.
There will be a slight change in the order and the sketches that are most thin will be cut so we can work on what is major.
Let's make everything real and build this great show, together. One of the myths of making work is that the Director has power and the performers are the servants.
We all see the visions.
I am in your hands, and you are in mine.
