The R&D for Oriente Plus is going well. Adapting to working online, we have found new ways of devising, setting ourselves tasks and responding to each other’s creative inputs. We have generated an immense amount of material in a truly collaborative way, and I can’t wait to bring all these elements together. There’s dance, poetry, music, storytelling… My job as a playwright and dramaturg is to weave this tapestry of talent, and help structure the piece in a way that does justice to all the art-forms and artists involved. I’m enjoying the challenge.
