These performances contain coarse language, nudity and sexual references.
Recommended for mature audiences.
I’m guessing very few people will take the time to watch all of these. My suggestion is to start at the top and work your way down the list.
There are a couple of moments amongst these performances that make me cringe, but on the whole they were honest attempts to speak about things that mattered to me. And some of them are funny too!
When I was younger I think it was forgivable for me to share my inner life on stage. But at some point I needed to learn more, and try to sort my mess out. I loved being an artist, but my work was really a by-product of a process I was going through. We never know where these processes will lead us. You just have to go along for the ride.
The ADOPTION piece is fairly recent. Whilst the footage is not great, it's a serious work and I think worth the listen.
Many thanks to the friends who filmed this work:
