How did you get involved with 'Brain Hemingway'?
I got involved with Brain Hemingway after replying to an advert for a choreographer that I had seen.
What is your background with the Edinburgh Festival Fringe?
I love the Edinburgh festival and the fringe shows that go on during this time. It is a hive of creativity and such a buzz to be around. My husband has performed at the Edinburgh Festival and I have been twice to enjoy the amazing atmosphere and soak up the fresh, exciting, variety of productions. What is your favorite musical or play? My favourite musical, ohhh this is a difficult one, but I think it has to be Dear Evan Hansen. I think everyone should see it and be educated in the lessons it teaches us. To be aware of others and what they may be feeling. The music is incredible and the storyline will move you. What have you missed most about live theater? I have missed everything about live theatre- being sat in the auditorium the anticipation of the show you are about to see. The performers living their best lives, all the years of training they have been through to bring the characters alive. Being swept away in the music, acting and choreography. There is nothing like that immersive atmosphere to really escape to.
What celebrity lives rent free in your head? Elle Woods- Sassy, Confident, Kind, Witty. She believes in herself and goes for her dream in dazzling style and with a few high kicks! What helps you when you feel overwhelmed? My family - talking and sharing any worries I have. And getting outdoors - fresh air, wild swimming and long walks. Shampoo/Conditioner: yes or no? Definitely a NO to combination shampoo and conditioner!
