Looking back on the project, Rough Mix has certainly been influential. Although pinning down exactly how it has influenced me is somewhat more complicated.
I think that Rough Mix was my first step into the theatrical as a sphere of specialism – theatrical as opposed to performative. I learnt a lot about the differences between these two frameworks, and about the similarities of concern. I’d never worked alongside actors, choreographers, or playwrights before. I’d never seen actors at work and I knew very little about the most basic processes of development. And so at a purely knowledge-based level I learnt a lot of skills, as well as feeling privileged to be given an insight into others’ working methods.
