Back from Shanghai, and post-production blues have hit like a wall.
It was an incredible experience, tough and frustrating and exhilarating and so much fun all at once. I miss it already.
Productions are funny things – they are such intense connections – with other people, and the places, stories and characters within. When the run is over, the costumes and props are packed up, the set and light rigs dismantled, the theatre cleared, the people separated… and it’s almost as if it never happened. It evaporates into thin air. This is part of the magic of theatre, of course. But it’s also such a good reminder to treasure the experience while it is happening. To be present through it all :-)
