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!
