A huge thank you to the cast and creative team working on the R&D of 'In The Tall Grass' last week - so much was achieved in our time working on the early draft text and the future of the piece is looking very promising. We asked questions on the text and of each other, explored stating with visionary direction from Anna Jones and heard the start of some very poignant underscoring from composer Jake Nice. Feedback from the R&D audience was enlightening and inspiring - as were powerful issues addressed during the talkback session.
I leave the week with a notebook full of things to consider and incorporate into the next draft of the script, as well as the renewed motivation and inspiration to seek out new voices and continue my research and interviews.
The R&D process has been documented in a video by local filmmaker Adrian Aguirre and I look forward to sharing this soon.
