I always ask myself a simple question: how can I help? How can I help bring this story to life? How can I help bring this character to life? Finally, what gets me through is: curiosity. The need to explore. The beautiful and the gritty. The art of interpretation, gives me the permission to breakthrough all the borders and constructs set by myself &/or others, through playfulness, impulsive decision and deep surrendering.
