Crop rotation has been practiced almost since the beginnings of agriculture. References to it can be found in ancient Roman and Chinese texts. Fields constantly planted will become depleted of the minerals and nutrients that allow plants to flourish. They must be left fallow in some seasons to recharge the soil.
I've gotten a lot of questions about what South Stream will be doing next. The answer is: I don't know. Right now John is off to play Julius Caesar with Justice Theatre Project. Our esteemed director Andy is in the show as well. Me, I'm just taking some time off from theatre to let my creative energy recharge. And do stuff I've neglected for two months.
Will we do another show? Maybe. The goal of South Stream was to produce work that we want to produce. Stories that we want to tell, ideas that we want to share, and productions that we think we can do well. I think we did that with Copenhagen. I'm proud of what we accomplished. And that might well happen again. There are already a few ideas I'm kicking around. Nothing SOON though. For now, for me, it's time to let that field lay empty to the sky.
