Time to Shine

“There are a few things I love activating within actors in the rehearsal environment: joy, wonder, and mischief. When actors plug into their joy, the character can truly shine.

Wonder creates a deep curiosity in all things onstage and onscreen and produces particles of possibility in the air. And mischief sets the cat amongst the pigeons and releases a fantastic sense of chaos, mayhem and non-obligation to any set protocols within the world we’re depicting.

All three elements enliven characters in remarkable ways once actors give themselves permission to be open and fuelled by each.”
