It’s PANSA’s month of performance this September, here in Slaap Stad, and they’ve organised a few workshops for members and other people, so last night I went to one run by fab director, actor and theatre maker Rob "Ugli Bob" Murray, called "Listening with your Eyes". I liked the name, and I was also taken with the idea of participating as opposed to running a workshop.
There were about nine of us who pitched up. (It’s amazing to me how few actors take advantage of this kind of offer to work and play and further their skills, but that’s a separate blog entry for another day). Ugli Bob is charismatic and charming, and totally in love with his art, so he passes this on with great ease. It was a delightful, entertaining, refreshing and fun two hours playing with new people and living ‘the art of possibility’. Thanks Ugli. It was a little like having my batteries recharged.
