The Copenhagen Interpretation

The name comes from a Quantum Mechanics theory that I can't begin to explain, but it's related to my view of the interaction between audience and live performance: that every encounter between any audience member and any live performance on any given day in any given place at any given time is unique. Much of my work is about acknowledging that, and facilitating encounters that are designed to embrace and enhance it.

The Copenhagen Interpretation is not a theatre company. It's just a description of the people and the processes I work with, in the name of finding the elusive system that is the cardboard box in which Schrödinger keeps his cat. Right now, I refer to it as Storyworlding (or Holodeck Theatre).

Here's my Tumblr, which is where I capture discoveries, thoughts and questions about it.
