ON THEATRE

WHAT TO DO?

The questions to work with are those whose answers are revelatory. Herein lies your only chance of originality – to shed new light, or to illuminate with a light that is not usually perceived.

WHEN THEATRE IS USEFUL

While there is darkness, or even just greyness, theatre will always be useful.

THE GREYNESS OF TRUTH

There will always be darkness and greyness for we will always be subject to the obscuring laws of relativity and perspective applied to truth.

ARTIST’S FODDER

Relativity and perspective make truth so difficult, if not impossible, to grasp but, at the same time they are forces that nurture work. The irrational in humanity is the artist’s fodder.

ART AND SCIENCE

Art’s relationship to science – with the paradox of science: embrace it with caution; stroke it and rub all its dirt to the surface; remember – “that which goes beyond good and evil is good and evil.”
