For my 40th birthday I created a domestic performance 40 Minutes and asked all the invited audience members to give me a notebook as a present. Now, from 2015 onwards, I am in the process of filling them: Everyday Writing Notebook, the Institute Notebook, All the films I’ve seen with baby James Notebook, 20th Anniversary with Gary Notebook (depicting 20 dates in 2015), Conferences Notebook, 2004/1994/2014 stories Notebook…
40 Minutes, a creation of 40 notebooks for 40 women in my life in the UK. A process based piece in which I wrote for 40 days for 40 minutes leading up to my 40th birthday, from 20 October 2014 to 28 November 2014. I turned 40 on 29 November 2014 and performed 40 Minutes on Sunday, 30 November 2014 at 4pm.
