This is why I create theatre. This man and his world that he created onstage is why I make the work I do. It connected on such a visceral level with the audience. Every element onstage was alive. Every prop, puppet, lighting state, lighting spot, sound, movement, the scrim, the ladder, even the backstage hands who came on at one point within the work, were there FOR a REASON. And it made complete sense even without words, without dialogue, without the need for any linear narrative whatsoever.
