what shapes the stories we tell?
i spent 20-some-odd years as an actress and the best bit of directorial advice i ever got applies not only to performance, but any kind of art – and life for that matter. the advice was this: if you bring your skill to the art at hand, you are only as good as your skill, but if you lay down your skill and bring all of who you are, everything you have ever experienced will be at your disposal. this is a much greater well from which to create.
what shapes the stories we tell? we do.
