This afternoon: Manuscript Found in Sargossa. The set excited me, as it looked a lot like what my Viola Project students came up with for their last workshop at 3Arts. Killer story, or rather stories, as it's about a young man who, while journeying through the mountains to Madrid, gets sidetracked into a gypsy camp full of people who have been likewise sidetracked and always insist on explaining why. Gorgeous, although a bit inexplicable right at the end, and the circus tricks really served to advance and illuminate the story, instead of dominating it. Circular, gasp-worthy, Picaresque. Also, incense was burned. I think this should happen more at the theatre.
