Off By Heart
Ella Fitzgerald said I am never bored because I am never boring. It isn’t the end of the world if I don’t document all the events in my life here and so I don’t. There are times that I think how boring it actually is. It is no bad thing to be boring every now and again. It was a friend of mine, a gallerist, who said of my life that it is full of over stimulation and so I find itdifficult to relax in the spaces inbetween.
I have been learning 5,000 words for my play Why I Don’t Hate White People since returning from South Africa three days ago where I performed Something Dark which is seven thousand words. I learned not only the words but the movements. And tonight I performed the former at The Udderbelly in The Southbank Centre as part of London Literature Festival.
