Mentor Session with Emma Rice
I was incredibly fortunate this week to have my first of two mentor sessions with Emma Rice.
I've always felt Emma's work present during my journey as an artist. I saw her season at the Globe while I was training, and it was a very formative time for me. I have adored her Wise Children work, so was elated to get this chance to talk to her.
Some of the things we covered in the session-
-Leadership in a rehearsal room
-Building a team of creatives
-Keeping going despite success or failure
-Making region specific work to take nationally
-Burning Instincts as apposed to goals
-What makes a good actor
-Nurturing a show and letting it grow.
I came away from our conversation completely rejuvenated and with new found confidence.
Thank you Emma for sharing your wisdom with me, and for being a constant inspiration.
