Then she...

Before Bausch came on board Engel read some fine examples that did gestures well.

-Flannery O'Connor in a good man is hard to fine.

-Charlie Baxter, Donald Bartheme, Nabokov.
She ended with the mocking work of Franzen's in the Corrections which uses the gestures to push the work.

Bausch got up and made sure that we all knew we could not be discouraged by the idea of over using gestures. "we go into the work, ready to work naked" don't listen to lectures and what not to do. Be a story teller and don't try to overthink these issues.

A wave of emotion flooded over me. Listening to Bausch is always a relief.

Bausch moved on to read from one of his novels.

"As you dream the scene, write the scene and then try to rewrite it."
