I had a great time performing in Story Kitchen’s TheatreSports on Saturday, and the show seemed to go down well with the audience. We’ve been rehearsing lots with Story Kitchen and it all seems to be coming together, so I thought I’d select some random tips that I felt on the night:

Relax
Relax
Relax
You don’t need much of an idea to get on stage, if any
You can play with movement, sound and space when you first get on stage without having to know where it’s going
Relax
Relax
Trust your scene buddies and help them to trust you
Support everything
Fuck yeah!
Take risks
Support the other team
Laugh and have fun
Relax
Relax
Just listen to the other person and go from there
You don’t need loads of ideas
Pay attention to the first line
Be there
Relax
