There is now a short story and some developing dialogue written by Clare Duffy that we workshop. Marel Pommerlo also writes for the project during this phase.
We talk about madness and depression and splitting and mirrors and how acting is connected to these things.
What is the connection between creativity and madness?
At this stage the project was called: Women on the Brink.
We talked about edges, brinks, madness, depression and joyful giddiness.
We wrote poems, played fragments of archetypal female characters, we put boxes inside boxes, inside boxes and we danced with Margie Gillis. We opened up the process to the public at the Traverse theatre as part of the Stella Quines Rehearsal Room event.
