The danger is that if we close the door on any single part of the process we'll miss some very profound or beautiful observations. I'm all for leaving the structure to the last minute and recognise that progress is a layered rather than a linear concept. Eleanor seemed happy enough with this.
This afternoon I met each of the Drama in Community sub teams for initial briefings and setting parameters. It's hard to define roles when we're not sure of the scale of the participation, but I think everybody left motivated and geared up for action.
Finally Stef came round to talk about Sarajevo. She's been interviewed in The Stage this week and given the work a brief mention. She's also been making overtures to Sean Holmes at the Lyric, Hammersmith to see whether there'd be any interest there in developing the project. I worked briefly with Sean about ten years ago and I think Stef and him see things in similar ways, so I'm pleased the contact's been made. It could be another stepping stone for her.
I'm aware that there's only so long we can spend on it as a hobby and without some additional support or funding we'll quickly run aground. For now though we're trying to arrange a series of meetings with Bosnian theatre groups in the hope of finding some allies as we take the piece forward.
