Howard Barker in conversation with David Ian Rabey (2/2)
10th May 2010
HOWARD BARKER SPECIAL (2/2)
The legendary playwright and Artistic Director of the Wrestling School talks to Professor David Ian Rabey (University of Aberystwyth), about tragedy, working with actors, and the ethics of directing. Plus Q&A. Part of the Howard Barker at the Segal Centre Day, a celebration of his work. Recorded live at the Martin E Segal Theater Center at CUNY Graduate Center, New York.
I love working with actors, and it alters you in some way. But because writers work in solitude it can be difficult to enter a room with 15 people and start organising them.
