// As a director, I love the opportunity to forever be a student ? the idea that each time you encounter a new text or collaborator the process must be reinvented and new areas of life explored. I am drawn to highly physical, visceral work ? where there?s a certain reality or concreteness to things and events onstage. I am most interested in a strong sense of ensemble and work best when everyone in the room has a voice and something at stake. And I am very interested in the relationship (spatial, interactive, playful, direct) between actor and audience. The theatre gives us the time and space to all be in the room together ? and I live for that moment when everyone in the room, actor and audience alike, is suspended on the same breath. //
