As much as I really love narrative, and I love a narrative that kind of loops back and ties things up, and structure can be so exciting, my favorite kind of structure is a poetic structure. A more or maybe even you could call it a song structure. I like a structure where it feels really like oh, of course. Of course, this has to happen. But you also don't understand and you never could have predicted.
And this way that things come together is just the most unique, insightful way. I mean, not to say that's not-- those are the poems I love. That's how I feel about poetry, that the way that the words come together all of a sudden yields an insight that could not have been forged with any other words in any other way. But you don't really know why you're having such an emotional response.
And I really pray that we are able to create a similar feeling with our piece. Our piece is not a clear narrative. It doesn't necessarily have a character that you're following beginning to end. There are a few characters whose through lines do grow. But the actors are playing many characters in many different scenarios.
But I think that the different scenarios build on one another and that there are three pieces happening at once. And there's also overarching in the piece, there are a few ways of thinking. There's sort of a fairy tale way of journeying through the piece. And then there's some more modernish scenes. And then there's some very dance-based scenes.
And so the piece overall invites you to puzzle it all together using maybe a more like emotion-centric brain than like a logic brain. And I think there is a very strong, I hope, emotional logic to the piece that pulls you through and that you have, I hope, at the end, a feeling that is this flash of emotion or insight that opens something that ideally goes with you far beyond the length of the piece.
Also, in trying to pull the whole piece together and working on an ending and, I guess you could call it kind of a climax, although I really think I'm not into the Aristotelian climax concept because I think in woman's world, there doesn't have to be one climax. You know what I mean? Like, there are many. And so actually, there are many potential endings for this show, and some that go on for a very long time.
It's very funny because Dan keeps saying, I want the show to be the same length for everyone. And I'm like, is pregnancy the same length for everyone? You know what I mean? And he's like, we can't let some people out 15 minutes before other people get out. And I'm like, why not? And he's like, what if they're carpooling? And I'm like, well, then they'll wait.
