Flying solo…

It’s not a new concept. In many ways I have been going solo for a long time. I’m just usually doing it with other people.

I know I’m not making much sense. What else in new?

It’s just that I’m trying to get away from the day job, the daily grind. Especially now that my daily grind has nothing to do with what I know best. Theatre. So, how do I change that? I have already begun a little light freelancing for Theatre in the Mill and every week this is like a breath of fresh air. They are such passionate, creative and, dare I say, eccentric people. Just the kind of people I want to be working with. I’m also making The Reservation with Ellie in my ‘spare’ time.

These are the things that make me feel alive and so I’d like to do more. Of both if I can. More freelance work for theatres and theatre makers, more performance work with gorgeous, wildly creative people like Ellie and Pete.

The CV’s (all three of them!) are up to date, the portfolio is being updated… And so begins the long and, I imagine, painful road of applying and applying for jobs, meeting people, networking and looking very hard to find that work which I so badly want.

Wish me luck.
