“There are so many avenues, which you can go down in this piece, individuals perspective, social stigma, mental disabilities, art and creators. It’s a very rich piece. I personally enjoy exploring the push and pull between the characters, as to me it feels that they are both pushing each others’ boundaries.
My rehearsal experience has been a new one for myself, all of which has been on the character development front. I am enjoying the process, as it is opening up a new avenue. Working together with Jess and our Director Melissa is great. Both are so into what they do, it has been a lot of fun discovering the piece.” – Coen Falke, ‘salt’
Working on ‘salt’ (as writer/director), is continually a ‘treasure trove’ of possibilities, with Coen and Jess.
Creating new work is my absolute passion – breathing life into these characters (Henry & Lilly) and listening inwardly and outwardly, for both quiet and noisy ‘human’ discoveries.
Mental health (cyclothymia) brings suppressed feelings, then honesty. Or not?
Is anyone ever honest with themselves, when ‘love’ is involved?
Filming trailer for ‘salt’ tomorrow will be a blast. Think love in abstract form, interactive landscapes and truth.
#projectsalt is just over three weeks, from being a reality!
“Truth in theatre is always on the move.” – Peter Brook
It Is Here
What sound was that?
I turn away, into the shaking room.
What was that sound that came on in the dark?
What is this maze of life it leaves us in?
What is this stance we take,
to turn away, and then turn back?
What did we hear?
It was the breath we took when we first met.
It is here.
~ Harold Pinter
Starting a new project is always exhilarating.
Working collaboratively with a small team, to create performance art.
‘salt’ may potentially, also be a short film soon.
I am consumed by the characters (Henry & Lilly) and their lives, and their stories.
I will share my experience with you through the platform of social media, film, radio, print and experiential events.
Let the journey begin!
