May is coming to its end and I've just had a birthday. We performed 'Can I Start Again Please' at the Brighton Festival and also at Mayfest. The show was well received, with near enough sell-out shows with appreciative audiences. At the beginning of the month I resurrected 'Still Life:An Audience with Henrietta Moraes' as part of the Phoenix Gallery & Studios Open Studio weekend. It was very nice to be with Henrietta again and, as always, some beautiful drawings were made during the performance.
I was remotely involved in an event entitled 'I'm Still Standing' as part of Mayfest organised by artist collective Residence. I wrote a letter read by Astrid Breel and that reading can be seen here
From June 6th Can I Start Again Please begins a two-week run at Battersea Arts Centre. I feel huge pressure to make the run a success in terms of audience numbers and it is all hands on deck to make that happen.
