Tucked away in a little room at Melbourne Theatre Company's head office, Pamela Rabe doesn't look entirely comfortable. That magnificent voice is contained, her body folded tightly into the chair. Occasionally a hand escapes with a gesture, pulling a rope tightly, waving a fresh wind through, wrenching the steely door of a treasure trove of emotions open.
Rabe is currently based in Melbourne, overseeing the openings of her third and fourth directorial outings, namely Sarah Ruhl's In the Next Room and Vanessa Bates's Porn.Cake; co-programming MTC's 2012 season alongside associate director Aidan Fennessy and actor Robyn Nevin, and beginning work on the outgoing MTC artistic director Simon Phillips's production of Hamlet as Queen Gertrude.
Rabe is hoping one of her passion projects will come through. "It's right at that point where you say yes and then suddenly, it's like a house of cards, where a big breath comes through and completely changes everything - but gosh, I'm hoping so."
And then, of course, there's Hamlet. The highly anticipated production stars Ewen Leslie as the prince of Denmark, with Rabe in the role of his mother Gertrude.
They worked together as part of Sydney Theatre Company's Actors Company, particularly in The War of the Roses, when Rabe played Richard III.
Rabe doesn't give anything away when I ask her what her take on Gertrude is going to be. "I've got no idea," she says without blinking.
Rabe avoids taking too much baggage into the rehearsal room.

It is reassuring to hear such a theatre stalwart say she is confident about the future of the theatre and is in fact excited by the fresh energies coming through. "There is a sense of a freshly valid voice starting to arise from a generation of thinkers, talkers, makers, doers hatcheting through the shackles of the baby boomers and saying it's our turn now."
She believes audiences continue to be inspired, frequently writing to her and telling her what theatre means to them. "That expression is about what it is to be a human being, to go to a Shakespeare play and for the shingles to fall off. They don't feel like they are being talked to in a foreign language, what they do feel like they are talking to is William Shakespeare's soul, or the soul of a fellow human being 400 years ago," she says passionately.
