There have only been a few times in my life when I’ve found myself unable to get a piece of art out of my head. The first was Franco Zefferelli’s Romeo and Juliet, which I had pretty much on repeat on our VHS player from age 3 to 5. I know. Weird. I didn’t know what any of the words meant, but I was completely entranced with the music and the beauty and bawled my eyes out on each and every viewing. (As a side note, I cannot watch it to this day without sobbing, much to my kids’ amusement).…

One woman, one audience member, no script. This is a crazy experimental and exciting idea I’ve had for a while but have only just gotten the guts to make happen! In developing the idea I’ve employed the help of the fantabulous TJ Mannix – Head of the New York Musical Improv Festival and an all round legend I was very excited to meet last year during my mad overseas jaunt. Anyway, the resulting show will be launching this Friday night at the amazing Queensland Cabaret Festival! It’s one night only and tickets are 20% off if you book online. Would…

I wasn’t even sure if such a thing existed but through the magic of the internetty place, I was able to find some amazing mentors and teachers, in the form of Jason Kravits, Ashley England and the dudes at North Coast Improv Hip Hop to name a few, to help me take the first steps to actually making this happen! The resulting show is called “Fully Made Up!” and is an incredibly silly hour-long romp entirely created from audience suggestions. I’m working with two amazing musicians (my…

Suffice to say that the lack of blog posts indicates how insanely jam-packed the itinerary has been this trip. I shall attempt to summarise in point form: I walked up to our apartment (a gorgeous little airbnb which if you ever happen to be in Marseille you should TOTALLY stay in, it’s amazing) and squealed at the view. And by that I mean I squealed EVERY SINGLE MORNING. Marseille is one of the most creatively inspiring and photogenic places I’ve ever been. I adored it and took a billion photos. Let me show you round.   the writing residency I…
