Someone suggested once that intimacy didn’t come naturally to me as a performer. In hindsight, this opinion was probably formed because the person had a simplistic view of my life and what I was capable of doing.

I find it easy to be intimate when I perform material that I’ve personally created. Why is it more of a stretch to interpret other people’s ideas for me? Maybe that’s work for other people to do.

It has been useful to walk in the shoes of interpreters. If I hadn’t made an effort, a sizable portion of my residual knowledge would not be available to me.

Each time I make a creative choice, it is informed by past experiences and things I’ve learnt.

Who says there is no point in taking the scenic route in one’s travels?
