“I went to a workshop once and everyone was standing in a circle and the teaching artist said, ‘Okay, someone go in the centre.’ Nobody knew what we were doing so everyone was really apprehensive about it. And then he said, ‘If you don’t act, nothing will happen. That’s true in life. And that’s true in the theatre. So someone has to go in the circle.’

You have to participate. You have to be a part of the experience. Everybody has a part to play.”
