Returning to Blavatsky's Tower

Someone asked me last week, ‘Blavatsky’s Tower? Didn’t you do that last year? How come you’re doing it again?’. The answer is, because the piece deserves it.

3 Crate have been working on and off on ‘Blavatsky’s Tower’ by Moira Buffini for a long time now, and it is a very special piece for the company. Buffini is an excellent…

Feel Good Friday

Do you ever wonder 'what the hell am I doing?'

In general, in life, in work, in casual chit chat.

What am I doing?

I think we all have those days where we question ourselves.

I seem to have them a lot (AHHH) and I know a lot of my friends have similar thoughts from time to time.

This one is for you :) you know who you are.

'You don't have to be great at something to start, but you have to start to be great at something' Zig… Continue

You'll Never Walk Alone; thoughts on being a volunteer (amateur) singer with NTW

As I write it's Tuesday lunchtime, April 26th, and news has just broken that the long-awaited verdict, in the inquiry into what has become known as the Hillsborough Disaster, has finally been reached.

In 1989, ninety-six football fans died when they were crushed in the mass exodus from the stands, after a football game. Today's verdict of 'unlawful killing' was called 'a victory for truth and justice' on the R2 Jeremy Vine show, and was followed by Gerry & the Pacemakers version…

Immersive theatre, the senses and dementia... a post about my encounter with Spare Tyre theatre company.

I've been a bad blogger over on my WordPress site, but I'm endeavouring to reverse the trend and thought I'd start with a wonderful talk, performance and workshop I attended in London at the beginning of March. After I wrote it I thought I'd also share it here!

Dementia is something of a 'hot topic' at the moment and in the absence of a cure, many people are looking to the arts for ways in which we can enrich the lives of people living with the disease to improve their day to…

Huddles: tell us what you think about the arts-business skills development of freelance artists

Some time ago now we started to pilot a new programme of works, funded by the Arts Council of Wales, which looked to support the development of key skills, necessary to help artists have a full and sustained freelance career. These were skills that artists asked me about a lot - marketing, budgeting, paying tax and so on. Things that don't mean you are a…

Feel Good Friday

Prince Rogers Nelson

We all simply knew him as Prince

A man who transcended music. An Icon.

57. Still years and years to give.

Prince once said

'If I need a phycological evaluation, I'll do it myself'

Did he care what people said or thought of him?

I think not.

We are all as I say week in and week out unique and individual.

Celebrate this!

Love this!

Cherish this!

It makes us who we… Continue
