The Rudes Style & Techniques

An ongoing project

I haven’t been keeping up my blog I’m afraid. I am an ‘oldie’ & so many new technological things have happened since I started making theatre, it is a job to keep up. In fact I am still struggling with how to switch my mobile phone on. However, I get a lot of feedback and requests to talk about how we make plays so I will bite the bullet & start a series of weekly blogs on the ‘secrets of The Rudes’, including our indebtedness to commedia dell’arte, the many devices we use such as tight & loose ‘knots’, ‘macchina’, ‘tableaux vivant’, ‘rich text’, ‘all’improvviso’, and so on. 

So watch for my blogs which I hope to publish weekly from ‘very soon’.
