May 2016

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.
