All the resolve and none of the action?

I have always found New Year’s resolutions to be unproductive but cheating by starting early has helped a bit. Last year I got going on to daily yoga on 23rd December which I believe helped in my father’s last days and in combatting what could have been a much worse acquaintance with my new companion and house guest #LongCovid This year so far I have … Continue reading All the resolve and none of the action?

Arts are on the list

#Feminists of #London – arts division – you note I have not specifically addressed this to the women – I have been selected by my peers in the The Women’s Equality Party London to be a candidate in the #GLA2020elections. This is just a little year away. For anyone who has ever made a show you know this isn’t a long time. I’m fourth in … Continue reading Arts are on the list

WE have certainly put … Continue reading Labour & Liberal Democrat manifestos miss a trick (or two)

Enter A Performer onto a level playing space

As we head in earnest into creating We Will Be Happy Here, Just Jones & is excited about opening our process up into a new way of working. Now that we’re doing it, it is of course startlingly obvious but as a small company living in an ableist society, we hold our hands up. We haven’t yet engaged people with physical or sensory disabilities to … Continue reading Enter A Performer onto a level playing space
