Action by Sam Shepard

VCA Director’s Season 2008

“ A large part of our excessive, unnecessary manifestations come from a terror that if we are not somehow signaling all the time that we exist, we will in fact no longer be there.”
Peter Brook

In Action we arrive at a world in crisis. Resources are low and power is weak. Gone are the days of mass entertainment. In this organised chaos, ‘community’ is a word indefinable. The individual hunts for a way of being with others. A way of acting oneself out.
