sitting with it

Sat on the train to Cardiff where I’m having a meeting about hopefully directing a show for Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.

I love the opportunity train journeys give you to just sit with your feelings for a while.

David Lan was rather inspiring last night – and he said something which makes sense of the whole Young Vic for me – throughout the building they try as hard as possible only to use positive words and language in their signs. It’s a small thing but I think has a profound impact on the atmosphere of the theatre which is one of the most welcoming and open arts buildings/theatre spaces that I know. I’m going to try and incorporate it into my practice as an artist from now on. Semantics do matter.
