Day Three: Travel

Wednesday’s rehearsal included a quick trip across the globe. One of the puzzles to solve in the staging of this show is about distance. Andy’s family traveled and lived all over the planet when he was a kid: Rome, Paris, Thailand, the Suez Canal, Zambia, a brief stop in Virginia then Calcutta and Kathmandu.┬áDavis spent a good bit of reahearsal today working with Andy on different ways to tell that piece of the story. Should he use the width of the BCT stage to create real distance or should he be confined to a small square of light and depend more on the text. In the end, the part of the story most about movement may end up being the most still.
