A view from rehearsals

Mehefin 5, 2018

An empty space.

Or so it seems.

A person in the space fills it with their thoughts, their history, every moment that has preceded this one.

It seems obvious, yet all too often we forget.

But how does that person share all those things that fill the room around them? Sharing requires more people, but more people have more thoughts, more histories. It multiplies, becomes richer. More complicated.

For most of us language is our first method of sharing. Our words give shape to our opinions, our experiences.

Once you speak the vibrations from your vocal chords last forever, becoming weaker, less distinct, more scattered, but still there. Words have power – literally and figuratively.

Our glorious performer Jonny has more than enough experience to fill multiple rooms. So far in the rehearsal room we have been exploring what to share, how to share it, how to invite others to share. Do we make more space, or share the one we have?

All we know is that we start with an empty space.

Or so it seems.
