I received this in the post this morning. It's not real. But it still makes me feel vulnerable.


We started work on Dance Bear Dance - a show about the gunpowder plot and modern terrorism - in the summer of 2001. 

The most astonishing and disorienting coup de theatre I've ever seen. It really felt, watching Dance Bear Dance, like something new was happening. It was in the best way totally mind-blowing. I've never seen anything like it. We loved it, maybe because shunt make the kind of theatre we never make. It was strange, wild, beautiful and funny and it conjured astonishing things out of the darkness.

To say that it was exciting just wouldn't do justice to the experience. Your preconceptions were forcibly rearranged.

The whole thing felt like being inside the head of a drunken genius.

The target is on the platform. In 20 minutes she will be travelling overhead. 

Thank you all for being here.
Thank you Kazakhstan for the gunpowder.
Thank you Cuba for the amusing additions to page 5.

We will reconvene in Norfolk.
