Receptiveness — ongoing…..
Among the books I read at Pacitti Company Think Tank Library Day, I took from Actions — edited by Eleonora Fabião, André Lepecki; Self-published 2015; the work by Carioca, Action #1: I will have a conversation about any subject and her quote: “An essential work tool is receptiveness.” In life generally I struggle with being too receptive and open; in performance art I do find that being receptive is essential, not always putting out with lots of things of no substance. I do want to focus on the concepts of Receptiveness in my practice. Thank you for my brain food Pacitti Company, I am fully fuelled to continue on that journey from the book I chose to focus in on that day. Though I did enjoy The Performance Space by Peter Brook, I had read that some years ago when interested in theatre design as recommended by the wonderful Pamela Howard at that age I was very intrigued and in awe of her and Peter Doherty they both influenced my decision to move to Suffolk to study here as a young 19 year old from Yorkshire.
