Deliverance R&D: Time as Material
Today, we decided to prioritise getting a feel for the whole play, so we ran through the entire script. We wanted to gain a greater understanding of the process that each character is going through. One of our biggest challenges this month is time, with only 4 weeks to bring this text to life. So, we are using time as a material and exploring how this can benefit us. Running through the entire text today taught us a lot, not only about each character’s process, but also about the technical needs of the performance. It cemented the importance of each character’s individual agenda and how this drives the narrative and the comedy. Looking forward to continuing pursuing this deeper understand as a way to find the interpretation and the main concept that we wish to place behind the text.
