The latest response to Carey Perloff’s Huntington Post article is by Rob Melrose:
Here is our dirty little secret: here in the US, Cutting Ball is an experimental theatre. If we were in France or Poland or Germany, we would just be a theatre. In those countries it is just expected that theatres will be constantly experimenting with form, constantly proposing new ideas about what theatre might be, constantly finding new ways of telling ancient stories. That’s just what theatres do there. The best way to find new forms is to explore the work of playwrights who were revolutionary in their own day.
