Going to Edinburgh

Time to take a break from Running on Empty...

Taking my solo Small Talk to Edinburgh Fringe:

18-25th Aug
9.30pm ZOO venues, Aviary

From the epic to the intimate, looking at human resilience through history, our survival of the present and our fears for the future. From natural disaster to the intricate and sometimes absurd nature of our daily human interactions...


Wake-up, open my eyes, not sure which comes first
Put the alarm on snooze, at least twice, 10 minute intervals
Get out of bed, put on a t-shirt, open the blinds, just a little, switch on the kettle
Make a cup of tea, eventually, after filling the time the kettle takes to boil doing something banal
Switch on the radio, sometimes, sometimes silence is ok, sometimes it’s not
Start getting dressed between sips of tea, that’s if it’s a morning when I have something to do

Sometimes sit and meditate for a while, 10, 15, 20 minutes at most
I don’t try too hard, but it feels nice
Carry on with the day, turn on my laptop, make the breakfast, let other people in.

And then came the FLOOD... and the ARK.... and selecting which animals would be left behind.
