Sometimes, when I’m directing a show or teaching a class, the notes I write down as direction, thoughts, and feedback can sound like a poem.  Here’s an amalgamation of my recent in-class/in-rehearsal musings that sound like a little poem to me.


Embrace reality
open up
create the boat
Speak up
we had chances to make this less creepy
call ’em out
watch, see, hear, listen
Trust your impulse
raise your voice
The bear can be a lady
Be a part of what’s happening
even if that means being apart from it
to be a part of it
Lovely, all around
