Timeline

Here is a sequence of events proceeding from Ben’s deepest past, at the deepest end of the page, to his nearest past at the top. This list represents an evolving context in which new work has emerged on the basis of prior engagement with thematic and dramaturgical preoccupations, together with wider considerations connected to the then-contemporary moment. Whether the force that drives this process tends toward some destination or not, it does not tend to revisit. It moves on.
