Leslie was that person.
She had been one of the directors we brought in to lead us through some ideas during our twenty-one hours of rehearsal. (Drew Richardson was another outside eye, and I lead some rehearsals oscillating between performer and director). Outside this project, Leslie was in the process of shifting her focus from performing to directing and it so happened that the workshop she lead in rehearsal provided the structure for how we ended up playing 500 Clown Macbeth. She really opened up the piece for us, in a way that made it playable and fun. Then we needed an outside eye to say what was good and bad in final rehearsals and she really tweaked and structured the whole thing. She was the fifth in our group. Leslie ran the audition. And then Leslie returned to guide us through multiple productions over the next several years, honing our formal deconstruction/reconstruction technique and shaping and refining our beats in ever more specific ways. Leslie's great strength was that she adopted our terms and guided us from within the form as she helped to construct it. Her leadership was designed to give us total on-stage authority over the material. Leslie Buxbaum Danzig is Program Curator of the Gray Center for Arts and Inquiry, a new arts initiative at the University of Chicago.
