Technical Rehearsal

Today is the first day of technical rehearsal.

In the past these were usually something of an ordeal for me: I hated watching my fragile construction of words buckling under the weight of the lights and sounds that were being forced on it.

Maybe it's because I understand better now, or have more faith in what I have written. But now I find a huge fascination, and a real sense of peace and calm, in sitting in the darkened theatre and witnessing the painstaking and immensely skilled process of coordinating lights, images and sound with action and words.

It's a beautiful expression of the collaboration and trust the art of theatre requires.

I find it soothing - in that I absolutely trust my colleagues' skill and taste - and incredibly exciting. Because I get blown away by revelations of unexpected beauty.
