Half of the artist´s life is spent brooding and working in the background, away from the public eye; experimenting, dreaming, doing. Being exposed, under the spotlight, is amazing (my comfort zone) but having a moon space where we can plant, water and feed ourselves, our new projects and relationships, is what gives everything meaning. I´ve been on stage, teaching, performing and lecturing for many years as well as labouring in the background – writing and dance projects. It ´s been wonderful to have a foot here and a foot there. Balance, they say. And they´re right. The luxury of time, space, self-knowledge and enjoyment of life´s pleasures – all that, and more which I´ll keep in my privacy – feed my work. Rich art comes from a rich life. You don´t have to take my word for granted – try it out.
