Any creative endeavour involves hazard.
We are fortunate enough to work with an eclectic and talented bunch of souls which inevitably lessens that hazard.
With our previous Workshop, Leaf and Flame, we had made a rod for our own back by extending the compass of R4 out into the night and into the realms of spectacle… and fire… and dance… and legend, courtesy of the street entertainers known as Mister Fox.
So, what this time for our R4 extension?
“It’ll need to be big, brash and in your face to counteract the, ‘Beyond the Veil’ section of R4.”
“We’ll hand it over to Dean and Ali.”
“Our Lore Keepers?”
Dean Powell and Alienora Browning have been April Workshop stalwarts since the Silent Eye’s inception and have on numerous occasions stepped in to cover more than their primary roles when illness or mishap has dictated.
“So how do we play it?”
“Just give them the story we want performed…”
“…and let them get on with it.”
We were not disappointed.
“It was better than watching telly!”
“It was brilliant!”
“They are legend!”
Trust is the other side of hazard.
Trust is also an antidote to fear.
