The stage is a loaded space and place I find equally familiar and terrifying.
Every move I make is witnessed by the audience.
If I face my natural fear towards this exposure I can be playful and try different approaches.
My favourite stages allow me this freedom and one such venue is The Hive in Hackneywick, London.
On the 18th March I performed within a cabaret at The Hive and experimented with the delivery of hand puppetry, with four puppets familiar to me for many years.
I felt success and failure in equal measure.
