What performances have you been involved in that you have enjoyed the most?
The performance I have enjoyed most was Gary Clarke’s ‘Coal’ because it took me a long way out of my comfort zone and I felt a massive sense of achievement when I succeeded.
What is the rehearsal process like for this piece?
I’ve enjoyed the structure of ‘The Last Dance’ gradually emerging through rehearsals. Hence the rehearsals have been engaging and informative.
Who do you play in this piece?
I play ‘Nanna’ or Alice – the older generation in the family.
How does it compare to other pieces you’ve been involved in?
‘Last Dance’ is smaller scale than some productions I have been in. It is unfunded, hence there are budgetary constraints affecting costume, props and rehearsal space. As it is physical theatre, it involves a different way of working from pure dance productions.
Describe the show in three words?
‘Last Dance’ is intriguing, interesting and thought-provoking.
What are you looking forward to most about performing at Emerge?
I’m looking forward to performing ‘The last Dance’ for five consecutive nights at the Emerge Festival. This will, unusually, give the piece a chance to develop and grow.
