The Piece

 The Piece

 * A project in development.

* A dramatic narrative to be realised either as a layered film, or as a work of theatre, or both.
* A new rendition of ancient myths, as they collide with current events.
* A story about a world out of balance, out of kinship with Nature.
* It is personal. Our own life stories are part of it, and have been affected by it.
* It draws upon the life stories of strangers we are meeting along the way.
* It is a journey which offers, not a resolution, but dreams of more balanced paths.

(We have changed the title from Duende to the working title of The Piece. This gives us more freedom as we explore the work in full.)

We are working with a very specific methodology inviting in the Tao and allowing ourselves to be directed through 'random' actions and instructions, and using the Taoist Book of Changes (the I Ching) for guidance. This is an old practice used by artists, creatives and psychologists, to allow the workings of the Collective Unconscious to come through.At this moment in history, it feels that whatever is offered out into the world needs to be deeply considered, and pertinent. For this reason, we are allowing ourselves to work very slowly, intensely, even 'obediently', until the deepest creative layers are opened up to us.

It is a wondrous process to be tasked with this very special work, and a great privilege. It is also a responsibility which we are committed to seeing through, despite all of its unknowns. It is certainly a vertiginous creative path we are embarked upon. Braque once said of himself and Picasso: 'We were like mountain-climbers roped together.' We feel similarly.
