Pleasure having everyone read this week's post. Thanks for stopping by and thanks to Crazytown for the opportunity. When I started doing this back in June, I had no idea I'd still be at it in February. Also, the writing of this blog has gone everywhere from Vancouver to Incheon to Jakarta. Have you ever heard the theory that all big cities are the same except they're in different locations? Just wondering.
I figure most people reading this blog know what minimalism is, so I won't dwell on it too much.
Back to the story. I was thinking about theatre and how cheap everyone seems. Don't believe me? See how many theatres don't pay royalties, like these folks in Tucson.
Most plays I write already have a "minimalist" set, so I figured why not do more? Or less? I'm confused.
Here you've got two characters - every line consists of one word. It ain't pretty, but maybe someone digs it. Have a read. Feel free to comment.
Actually, I'm intrigued enough by this I think I'll do the same in Korean.
