Can You Describe Your Path to becoming a director?
what do you find most joyful about directing?
When you begin directing a project, do you know what you are capable of?
Yes and no! Each project I do, I learn more, fail more, and succeed more. The depth of that knowledge stays with me and, hopefully, I don’t have to learn the same lessons more than once or twice. On the other hand, each project is unique with its own challenges and opportunities, its own group of collaborators, and the other people in the room teach and inspire me constantly. When I start a project, I know it is a skeleton but the other artists add the muscles and sinew and tendons and organs and blood to pump through the life force that becomes the play. Together we create something beyond the capacities I have alone.
