Words, Words, Words: Good Quotes…On Story

21 Apr

“Ideas are never the problem. [The process is] looking for the stories I want to tell. I know that they’re there and that they are hiding somewhere. And it’s a question of finding out where they are.”

Simon McBurney

McBurney is a director, writer, actor, and founder of my favorite theater company, Complicite. Rather than write shows, they devise them.  One of their most recent shows, “A Disappearing Number” changed my life, artistically and personally. See their shows if you can.

    Man, that’s a great quote. It’s exactly what you and I have talked about. Where are the stories I want to tell? Learning that has almost nothing to do with storytelling and everything to do with practice. 10k hrs anyone?
