I believe the stories we tell are essential characters amounting to the world we live in.
Our past's present indications on a future.
I believe the next seismic shift needed in the theatre is one that will not take place on the stages.
What is needed now is a consonance of conduct and action, purported values and upheld beliefs, and definition of intentions and expectations in our pursuit.
The coming change will not take place on the stages. It will take place in the process.
I believe our Why has guided a revolution of the process in terms of Who, What, When, Where, and even How.
The revolution of process as a means of expressing our Why.
Over time, the hat turns on its head, and we again find ourselves at the place where the revolution of process has become our Why.
Our Why IS the revolution of process.
Our Why, what used to guide, now guided by, the Who, What, When, Where, and even How.
Our Why, contained within, and dictated by, process, then reaching no further than the confines of production at process's end.
Then the coming change will not only be about good work, but better ways.
It will not only be about maintaining the respect and patronage of those already in the stalls, but of rediscovering and reigniting the trust and imaginations of those in the streets! (the hills, the factories, farms, and seasides)
It will be about treatment. And Dignity.
And it will not take place on the stages.
It will take place in the process.
It will take place in the search.
And may the new search lead to new findings.
