ABOUT

‘the play happens with an audience. and with failure which is most often the case you simply begin again. you try to learn and do better but usually you don’t. a kind of obsession to reach oblivion.’

_J2C8830LILAC offers an evental structure, a dramatic structure which moves from event to event rather than scene-by-scene. These events are interruptive, continuously messing with an audience’s attention. Fundamental to this event structure is language. Written and directed by Sean Lewis, the language recalls modernist literary experiments such as those of Gertrude Stein, Samuel Beckett, Lewis Carol, and Antonin Artaud. By using language that is connotative rather than denotative (that suggests something rather than “saying” something) an audience member can dwell rather than be directed what to think about – a narrative progression or a character’s “inner” psychology. Such language affects feelings and ideas actively,if not immediately,in an audience.[Thom Donovan, Wild Horses of Fire, 2009]
