Listening to The Kleptones after a hectic few weeks producing and directing Cinderella, I had a blinding thought.
The show had brought people together. Seeing and enjoying a show fostered community spirit and cohesion. It drew attention to Hill Station, our community cafe on Telegraph Hill, itself conceived as a gathering point for everyone in our community.
We shared a moment of happiness.
That shared moment of happiness was when you could almost hear the walls in people’s heads crumbling.
I want to create more of these, and fast. Next ‘entertainment’ focussed project may involve singing, then ping-pong. Anything which brings people together and breaks down barriers whilst providing fun has to be worth the effort doesn’t it?
