One of the many wonderful things about this talk is how quickly MZ switches topics, which seems to be in direct relation to the profundity of what she has said immediately before the topic switch.
And the fact that she seems to almost choke up, finally, on her final phrase. Because it means that much. Thank you, Mary.
It's also such an amazing articulation of why, despite my love for and fascination with site specific performance, I will never give up on theatre in a room. Proscenia I can do without, but the empty space, never. It's too rich with possibility, and focus on the phenomenon of body/ies in space.
Having lovely Black Friday conversations on this topic -- and the essence of theatricality -- today, for which I am infinitely grateful and inspired. Lots of thanksgiving this Thanksgiving.
