DP Theme Day: Self-Portrait In My Favourite Place a.k.a. the journey with my vanity and ego continues
For the past month, since the theme was announced, I struggled to find the one singular picture that would best describe the place where I was most satisfied and fulfilled. My favourite watering hole, café, road side food stall, restaurant, all the rooms in my house, with my friends, on a plane even. I have pictures of myself in all these places and more. Each one with it's own reason to why it's my favourite. It took me close to 10 hours to narrow down my choice to 2. Then I went to bed.
Today, I chose this one. This was taken about 2 years ago when I performed, designed, directed and produced my company's inaugural production, in K.L. of course. A first child of sorts and it made me proud that I finally began my life's journey. There's nothing quite like the adrenaline rush that comes at the end of any performance. When the audience applauds and it is that moment you see how months of passionate work come to fruition, knowing that you did something right. Really, there aren't any words to truly describe the sensation. My work means the world to me. To top that off, it became the biggest winner in the Theatre category at last year's Arts Awards. My ego was humbled.
On stage (and off) is my most favourite of places.
Phew. Theme day accomplished. Now, wander to these other cities and have a look at more self-portraits.
