The versatile character of the Close-Act company is very powerful and the collaboration among the players is always a joy. Try looking at the Globe performance from close-by. The actions of the riggers under the sphere are just as interesting as what the actors in the Globe are doing. In a multidisciplinary spectacle, the lines of the individual roles are blurred. Every crewmember is also an actor. The job of the person pulling the cart is intrinsically linked with the role of the actor. It is a difficult task to move the mobile just subtle enough that it suggests the motion of the sea, while simultaneously reacting to the movement of the pedals the actor is using.
It is sometimes easier to replace the main actor than a crewmember.
