LONG STORY

I do a lot of things, I know. Sometimes it can seem like all of these things are a random assortment but they are all fuelled by the same drive. 

We're taught a lot of things in the world are absolutes, like the way we organise money or that men are more powerful than other genders. We're taught not to waste our time on imagining anything beyond these things, because they won't change.

In contrast, the most priveleged in society are taught to imagine the future, and that balance doesn't sit right with me. All the things I do come back to trying to change this.

The shows I make are all about giving people a chance to get into that childish head space where you can imagine just about anything. My funding and organising work is about helping other people to do that imagining too because I'm not the right person for everyone's imagination.

In a world where only the powerful are given permission to imagine how the future turns out, I think it's a radical act to take that right away from them.
