Donald RumsfeldPosted: 27 November 2012
Luke & Michael are constantly refining a system for self-criticism that is borrowed from Donald Rumsfeld. We have to be honest in rehearsal about what we know works and what we know doesn’t work, as well as what we don’t know works and what we don’t know doesn’t work – both in our own work and each other’s work. To help us through this inevitable mindfuck, it’s crucial to have pairs of outside eyes and ears to look at our stuff and give us feedback. With that in mind, we’re currently taking a short series of classes with Mark Beltzman between now and the end of 2012. Next year, in addition to our ‘open’ rehearsals, when we invite some of our favourite improvisers to come and play with us, we are planning sessions with Patti Stiles and Cariad Lloyd.
Luke & Michael are very lucky to have such phenomenal eyes and magnificent ears as these to help us through any Rumsfeldian confusion.
