Usually, at the end of a workshop, I wish everyone good work. I know that one cannot teach, but only learn. I know that the road is long and that everyone must translate and betray each piece of advice through personal practise. I will try to write remembering what I have often repeated during workshops. There will always be a residue, something unsaid. I accept this responsibility with the illusion that these pages can be useful to an actress in search of her voice. I begin driven by the need to dialogue with the past, to forge words that may orientate and also to see women's names in theatre history books: a history that dances with a vulnerable and subjective power.
Notes from an Odin Actress ( p. 6 )
"So much of our adult life had been defined by moving around. But that’s changing. This is the first time that there’s no urgent feeling of what’s next? Making the choice not to think that way opens up more doors than you’d realize." Sam Wessner
