The Long Haul

20121210-181914.jpg

In our first four weeks of rehearsal we have roughly got to grips with what we imagine to be half the show but only a third of the book. My challenge before we reconvene is to prepare a draft script condensing the remaining two thirds of book into half a show.

I am determined that this project should not too rigorously test my theory that shows are never ‘too long’ only ‘not good enough’ (basic Philosophy of Aesthetics – duration is not an aesthetic quality). The challenge is substantial but a week in Tokyo running a five day workshop should provide enough long haul flight time and jet-lagged insomnia for my to make significant inroads.
