What a phenomenal week it has been - not many pics as I've had a baby on me a *lot* plus I was far too busy soaking up all the learnings but grateful I got a few :-)
Thank you Barbara Houseman for being such a generous, knowledgeable, practical, funny, inspirational lady - I'll hedge my bets and say I reckon every actor will have left today full of gratitude for what you've gifted them this week sprinkled with deep sadness that they won't be in your company tomorrow.
Actors - thank you for being ready and open and willing to dive into the unknown whilst supporting each other in the process. What beautiful work you all did.
Remember, look back on your notes. Choose the exercises which worked for you and find a routine.
Be kind to yourselves. It's not selfish, it's self compassion. You deserve it.
You can't Do a Don't. So... you might as well just Do. Receive your breath, don't take it.
**Don't be afraid to take up space. You are a gift.**
See you all soon we hope, at the next one?

Ps thanks so much for welcoming Pip into the space with such openness. What a lucky little boy :-)
Wow, what an incredible week: Voice and movement classes intertwined with our Meisner teaching.
Two groups of actors discovering and exploring what it is to be present, physically,vocally & mentally. Newbies learning from regulars and regulars learning from newbies.
Thank you for such generosity and openness to our process, to each other and for the ever changing dynamic a 5 week old baby brings to the space.
Thank you Patricia and Bella for your inspirational teaching. We have loved working with you.
You are who you are, you have what you have, right *now*.
Be kind to yourself.
Now, go and find an ice cream, a cold beer or a [insert cold item of your choice] you deserve it!!!
