“Every breath is a new purpose, a new possibility and a new life.”
Theatre-making is a rehearsal of life – the deep discovery and understanding of being more human each and every time. As we navigate this journey without hierarchy, social class or judgement, we will encounter the endless possibilities and treasures that real life often conceals.
As equals, let’s be open-minded, hungry, daring and allow our imaginations to run wild for the most creative exchanges and broadening of mindsets. And if it’s humanity that guides us, the value we can create in the wider community is boundless.
