The show I saw last night, was called An Oak Tree written and performed by Tim Crouch and a guest actor. It's the first time it has been performed here in England. It was a big hit in New York. I went with Julie who recently Co Starred in Ken Loach's award winning film. We laugh alot. Our senses of humour click which is always a good thing. The event was a live recording for BBC World Drama.
I must go out more and see shows, drama, dance, literature and music. I could not be in a better place to be stimulated by art – London. I am so busy speaking that I could easily lose the capacity to listen: so busy projecting my own work that I am not seeing. My next phase at The South bank, the arts centre where I am based, will include seeing more shows. Note to self.
It's going to be a gorgeous day. There's a grey morning sky and the night rain leaves the streets shiny. Sometimes I like to look at puddles and only see the reflection. When I do this the world is infinitely more interesting. It's as if the puddles are the real world and we are walking in the bits inbetween. There's a large puddle and it reflects the sky. If I jumped in the puddle would I fall through the sky. There's a childrens poem waiting to be written.
