Since I have no stage obligations these days because of pandemic, I now am going to put some of my memories in my theatrical life.
First of all and most importantly, my experience of British Director’s Guild Workshop.
Here is a group photo.
Some of them I still keep contact with.
Some of them I happened to celebrate the reunion.
Through this workshop, I learned the charm of acting and directing Shakespeare for the first time.
I am not lying. I had been an experimental avant-garde style director and not interested in Shakespeare staging at all. (Of course, I liked the plays to watch, though.)
But in this workshop, I met John Burton the founder of Royal Shakespeare Company. He totally washed my brain out (or rather, in?) to glimpse the great world of Shakespeare as a director and an actor.
I have a more interesting and deeper story to tell about this, but later.
Thanks to John, I am still working in theatre world.
