“What’s interesting is that there is no such thing as a bad audience. The more diverse, the bigger the mixture, the better the audience. Gradually they come to what for us is the test. The audience is won over. We have to go on preparing, building, sharing, until a point when that whole group of people who have each come off the street with their own preoccupations suddenly are touched. And that’s a mysterious thing.”
– Peter Brook ‘In Conversation’ in the programme for his Battlefield at the Young Vic
