  Tarek Ali Hassan's Success Story
I picked up a hitchhiker on my way to an cultural conference in the South of France. He turned out to be an active member of the London School of economics drama society. He shared my manuscripts of drama and poetry and shortly after I found Sebastien Bergman a typical theatre director genius at my door. He became embroiled in my dramatic vision all going back to the Osiris fountain. He dragged many enthusiastic students amateurs and professionals into the foray. I remember Mike Simpson and Martin Scott. We all worked together in an atmosphere of magical determination. Within a few months we were performing in Durham, then the great breakthrough we were invited to the Ediburgh festival fringe. We felt then that WE DID IT! It was an unforgettable experience with great promise, but we were all inexperienced and lacked worldliness to follow up on our great achieved success. We needed a dedicated agent and public relations talent. We had already achieved many first in avant garde total theatre and were looking forward to disseminating ideas that we believed were very relevant. We were very well received in student drama circles (Durham, London, Edinburgh).It all seemed like a resounding success. Inspite of all that, lack of funding finally led to withering of the fantastic initiative.The general shift right into variations of 'neaconservatism' filled individuals with anxiety. The group started to break apart. Not only did they break apart but the spate of freedom, creativity and many 'first' in the domains of creative art and in exploration/expression, become a source of anxiety even denial.Old ftiends and lovers wanted or needed to dissociate. I fell in love and married an English woman whose origins were conservative and privileged and was never forgiven by the group for that 'betrayal' whereas I always though that the real test of our avant garde breakthroughs was that they are our doors are open to all who ask regardless otherwise our humanist credentials and our integrety would be eroded
