I was so inspired by The Wooster Group's The Town Hall Affair, which I saw in San Francisco in April, that I hopped a plane to join them for a month in upstate New York! I am apprenticing with The Wooster Group as they develop and premiere A Pink Chair (in Place of a Fake Antique), a play about the work of Polish director Tadeusz Kantor. Tickets for this Bard SummerScape production are available here if you find yourself in the Hudson Valley. Liz LeCompte directs.
This has been the best summer camp ever ... heady days in the rehearsal room with Liz, Jennifer Tipton, Kate Valk, and the rest of the brilliant Wooster Group, fancy-free evenings of BBQ and beer pong, and wild weekends at the famous Bard SPIEGELTENT, pictured here during a quieter moment . . .
My favorite quote from the rehearsal room was Liz declaring "This is my last show with human beings. From now on, robots." This woman is a goddess, for anyone who didn't know that already. Thank you, Woosters, for an amazing experience. I can't wait for the next chance to intern/intersect!
