DIRECTING

MY WORK

AFRICAN GOTHIC

A POWERFUL PIECE BY REZA DE WET

When we rehearse, the centre of the work is not really the information, but an unspeakable kind of connectedness that we find as we attempt to tell the truth, rather than give an explanation of truth.

The information will be useful in the end. But the most important work is on being with each other. Being in the room.
