Within a few hours, Anna gets on a plane in Australia to start a journey that will end, two months from now, in the heart of a production I can hardly imagine. That makes things very real.

I have a sense of a magnetic force, pulling disparate people from several countries and from round the UK to one place for one purpose. The first step in the forming of an ensemble is a willingness of unconnected people to come together in a single place  and time with a common aim. Without the shared intention, and the willingness to sacrifice for that intention,no amount of thinking and no style of training can generate an ensemble. It starts with an individual commitment – to the self, to the collective, to a vision of a way of making art.

The time is tightening.
