“Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You cannot get there by bus, only by hard work, risking and by not quite knowing what you are doing. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover will be yourself.” ~ Alan Alda, to his daughter

THE ARTISTIC EXPERIENCE
Jessica’s role as Calliope has been a rollercoaster experience in the best ways possible. Working with Colaboratory Co, she appreciates how every voice matters in the telling, or re-telling of these stories. Discovering the magic of this Muse while learning how to ground her in the relationships within this performance, has been a creative challenge. However, being given the chance to share this experience with this group and their support, has been incredibly rewarding. Jessica would like to thank this cast & crew, her friends & family for their love, laughter and support.
