With My Group Scene Partner, Aria Law
Working creatively with children could be so rewarding. I understood this while collaborating with Richmond Youth Honour Choir in the play, Ridiculous Darkness. Having children as co-performers had imbued me and other cast members with their liveliness. I couldn’t give up when those much younger gave off so much passionate energy.
Out of all the rehearsals in 2017, I remember the one on Wednesday, November 1st most vividly with joy. It was the day after the Halloween and the whole company enjoyed numerous lollipops, the leftovers from the the day before. It may seem trivial, but getting treats boosted everyone’s morale while we rehearsed the group scenes. My partner, Aria Law got me a lemon lollipop and I licked it to oblivion during the break!
It is always good to feel like a child again.
