the storm before the calm

My last day of meetings and madness before I get my head down for the relative calm of rehearsals.

Starting with a meeting at the V&A about this folio reading. Then meeting a producer called Lucy, who I met at D&D, then a movement director called Lucy, who I met at that RSC workshop I did in January. Then a meeting with our Metta producer for the Hampstead show, then a meeting with Hampstead.

In between am reading poetry on the tube – must make time for art amongst the practicality of meetings. How is it that words have such power to move, transport and transform us? Poets are the bravest artists, for baring their souls, without the expectation of applause.
