Edinburgh X – 8/17

8/17

It’s a luxury to objectively revisit a work, to clarify and fix, and maybe even dig a bit deeper. A family reunited, our shared DNA is craft and commitment. Our experience of the original production is a reliable reality to tap into, but video technology remains a practical way to track down the more renegade details. We’ve all been asked to watch the videotape, which can be a sobering, even deadening experience—did what I do on stage REALLY register like that? Well, no, its video, not live performance, and must be looked at and listened to conditionally. Ultimately it’s the role of our director Robert Woodruff to steer us back to the dramatic truth.
