Lynda Radley - Rough Mix Experiences

We are half way through the second week of the wonderful Rough Mix Process and, until now, I've been sweeping the rest of my life and other projects under a big carpet in my head. However, certain creatures are beginning to creep out. So, as I write this I'm keeping these distracting thoughts at bay.

However, I know that as soon as I enter any of the studios in Dance Base -be it to work on Viewpoints, or Voice or on any of the projects being developed- I'm gently immersed in a generous and absorbing process that allows me to 'just be' in the present moment in a way that I often find difficult within my own writing process. I'm hoping that I'll be able to take some of that feeling with me after the week is through.

I've been working on a new script and idea that is in the very early stages. Some of things that I've discovered are:

  • that working with Voice can be a great aid to dramaturgy

  • that thinking about Viewpoints can move the relationships between the characters to unexpected places

  • that there is nothing better than working with generous actors

  • that string has a million uses!


Like Nick, I've been struck by the connections between projects and processes. I look forward to seeing how things knit together.

Rough Mix sounds intriguing. I'm part of an Artlink writing project, in collaboration with Dancebase - and I'm coming to your sharing on Friday. My group all have hearing problems though - so I'm really hoping your 'generous actors' will give a moment's creative thought to how you can include us in getting the most from your performance - maybe the text can be available to us in a printout? Or could there be back projection of script from a laptop onto the blank wall? Or a link with remote captioners? (http://www.bee-communications.com) I know Dancebase has a loop system - but sadly that doesn't overcome the difficulty - and it's so frustrating to feel excluded from the complete experience when you can't make out the words! Looking forward to Friday.
