So the glass is half, or more than half, full for you — is that fair to say?

TAYMOR This has been an indescribably devastating time for our community, so I feel like we must say that very clearly. But I think, occasionally, with great hardship comes growth. And yeah, having to stretch in new mediums, and tell stories in different ways, and be able to respond to this extraordinary moment has been a real gift. And a necessity, to be honest, because we need to support ourselves.

Tell me how your professional lives relate to what you’d imagined they’d be at this point?

WHITE When the world shut down, March 13th of 2020, I had every single day of my life for the next year-and-a-half to two years laid out in bullet points: “This is your travel time. This is your this time. You’re going to be more tired here. Your period starts here.”

Because you’re an ambitious person or because the field demands it?

WHITE Because the field demanded it, nobody was talking about how hard it was. And then the shutdown happened, and we started talking and I started learning. I started dreaming and thinking differently.

TAYMOR I was in London. I flew back, height of Covid, and I was so sick when I got back and my family was like, “We think you have Covid.” And I was like, “No, no, no, I’m just at the end of a long period of working, this is what it always feels like.” I did have Covid.

RAFAELI Freelance directors are particularly isolated.


RAFAELI In the American theater, there is one director in a room whereas there are multiple designers and multiple actors. Danya or Whitney or Taibi, we’d be kind of ships passing in the night as we leave one show and the other comes in.

But isn’t that the kind of personality drawn to being a director?


WHITE Not at all.

TAYMOR Directors are collaborators by nature. We’re good with people. The women on this call, I would say, are probably high on the list of the people I’m going up for jobs against, and that’s part of the isolation the industry tries to drum up — this idea of scarcity. We can really help each other create, and we don’t have to view one another as competition.
