I was invited to perform at an event in Northampton called Improvised Occurrences curated by Jennifer Polins on the same weekend that I taught a workshop called Life Is Not A Bitch at Earthdance (at the invitation of Sarah Young). As is often the case with these kinds of one of performances, I didn't rehearse at all but mapped out a very basic plan that involved four different "actions" that involved different things I've been thinking about, including the drama of relationships and my love for Enya. I wrote the dialogue when I got to the venue. I find that pressure, even panic, is a good motivator for creativity.
