I've just got back from Utrecht where I was seeing work at Tweetakt - what an amazing festival! A chance to see a real variety of performances for young people. What was interesting was how many shows were made by professionals working with acting and design students. Gave the whole thing a very experimental feel. Think it's an interesting way of getting new theatre makers interested in creating work for children and young people.
Pia, from Helsinki, sent me this photo of me interracting with the children at the end of My house. I look like like i'm possessed - truly terrifying.
Have just finished performing 'My House' at Polka Theatre, London where it played for 10 days. I am currently performing it in Helsinki where it is 'Minun Taloni'. I only have a few words to speak in Finnish but i find it really tricky.
It is fascinating to see the different cultural differences between the countries and cities I have performed the show and how young these differences form.
