DK: With all of our work, we want people to leave with the feeling that the things you see in the world aren’t always how you think they are. We like to take preconceived ideas and smash them so they can open doors and the audience can see everything as a child would -- completely new -- in order to make their own definitions and to redefine things again. Hopefully.
I asked the woods this:
How do you want me to love you?
From then on, I just followed that lead. Years before, I’d heard a man, John Lee, talk about the wonder of that question within a human relationship, the good it could do. To no longer crowbar your own sense of how that should look onto another. To actually take a breath and enquire.
