On this page, I most recommend watching the entirety (all 9 parts) of the Theatre Forum Ireland Keynote speech, though it is quite long it is an extremely informative look into Crouch’s aesthetic, how he came to it and where it’s going.  Additionally, the conversations with Caridad Svich and Siobhan Davies are particularly illuminating.
