So, is it okay to ask people to work for nothing?
I hope that the people who come and do one-off readings or workshops with me are there because they're getting something out of it, just like I am.
When I say "I made a theatre company", actually what I mean is that I discovered some things. I realised that the way I'm interested in working can broadly be described as The Copenhagen Interpretation, and I discovered that I'm happier working with certain people and I want to work with them as much as possible.
So I put up a website with the name on it, and our pictures. Some of our pictures. There are some who come and work with me more often, because they can, and others who cannot do that so often, but are just as much part of my circus troupe in my head.
That's my sort of collective: informal, bound only by joy in making work as and when we can, and want to.
If and when there is money, we spend it on ourselves and make work with money attached to it.
How about you? How do you like to work? What do you do about the money?
Here is today's video.
