I'm writing you from a bathtub.
Before you get too jealous, let me clarify. As I type this, Sarah Gliko and Campbell O’Hare are rolling me onto the stage as my character takes a bubble bath. Today, we’re just practicing transitions, so... the bathtub is empty. (See? Not so glamorous as you thought, #AmIRight?)

I have no idea what Blanka does when she goes home from rehearsal. But I’m pretty sure she doesn’t sleep. Every day she walks in with new ideas, with new solutions to old problems, with new questions it hadn’t even occurred to us to start asking yet.
This week I sat down with ADAPT!’s internationally renowned composer, Mariana Sadovska. We discussed the art of listening: how it’s the first step in creating sound, and how it’s not just about sound waves but people, space, circumstances, and the script itself.
