“We reveal our truths so that different characters can live within us for play. We condition our vessels, instruments, and bodies so that the breath can flow through us as we tell the most intimate and intricate stories that pertain to human life. We listen deeply to our heartbeats, our rhythms, our needs, we prioritise our creativity, we don’t “put on” anything, because we, as we are, are more interesting than any preconceived ideas of drama and acting could ever be.” Sodienya Wabaso Amajor.
