Spent a great week down in Philly working with Peter Clerke and Melanie Stewart on a Jekyll and Hyde inspired piece for next fall. Pete works with benchtours, a Scottish theater company and Mel is a director/choreographer down in Philadelphia. I've known Pete for awhile, we met up in Edinburgh years ago, but never worked with him before. I spent most of the week in the back of the room observing and taking notes as I'm the designated text guy for the project.
Pete does a lot of work with neutral masks and I hadn't seen some of the techniques he was working with. Always amazing how much power and presence those exercises can create in such a short time.
