With Starchild and The Cave I'm begining to think "how is this to be done?" you see if you imagine something, only then can it be made, but i dont want to be an arsehole and create somehting thats impossible for the sake of being impossible.
So I'm thinking that I should perhaps do something with puppetry for the tree and the snake, or else how will the audience know who is talking?
Also with the sky, i wanted the lights in the sky to twinkle when she talks and for starchild to form out of her randomly - also if he is in a scene he fades in and out as he is fluid and not here nor there. so animation and projection seems to be quite a good idea.
i dont want to give the tree a mouth or to use the words "so tree, what do you think?" as its tacky but for when he speaks i want his brances to move in a sinister / judderman meets the muppets way, but is this too overambitious for an adult audience - you see with kids they are much more accomodating for weirdness, adults are rubbish really!
im really getting into starchild and the cave as a peice as a whole - s'very weird that i feel like this early on in a peice. since i wrote sing sing i have not stopped writing a play nor have i enjoyed it as much as creating this.
