meeting Stacy Klein (founder and director of Double Edge Theater)
I had grown up on a farm, on the outskirts of Buenos Aires – I’m not really a “porteno”, a city boy. The theater group that I had tried to build no longer felt viable for me, and it was also the end of my first marriage.
When I landed here at the Farm in Ashfield in 1996, I told Stacy that I was planning to produce theater, and she said: that’s not who you are – you’re an artist, and it’s not gonna work for you.
At first I was shocked because her language was pretty blunt, and without knowing me – she was so direct. So we started working together, merging the Latin American approach that I had been doing with the kind of process that Stacy first developed in Boston.
