Programme note for John Doe
עזראל is the angel of death
mori no oto is the sound a forest makes
john doe is one of us, lying there.
From the house of daughters and the temple of knowledge crumbles of story and sound move through space. It is a channelled wrestling match between the desire to leave no trace and the need to give recognition for the gift that it is. Breath.
Excerpt from response in Theatreview
John Doe –
is one / all of us.
of yesterday’s paradigms.
Putting up an emotional tent –
bones of words,
skin of undertones.
Endless potentiality of the structure.
Look beyond the form.
Beautifully filled / held space
with tenderness, softness and striking honesty.
