Emma Rice is in Berkeley directing An Audience with Meow Meow. Here's a digital postcard from her...
"They say a change is as good as a rest and I have certainly had a change this summer! I have been with our friends at Berkeley Rep creating a show with the amazing performer Meow Meow. Some of you might have seen her as 'La Maitresse' in our version of The Umbrellas of Cherbourg and now she is resplendant, surprising, musical, hilarious, political, truthful and deeply touching in her new show 'An Audience with Meow Meow'.
"It's been an intense few weeks but we have laughed and danced and cried until our precious show was made. It opened on Friday to much standing and cheering and some truly astonishing crowd surfing! I am very proud to have been a part of such a groundbreaking and truly feminist show, but am thrilled to be coming home.
"I am eager to get straight down to The Asylum and be with my beloved Kneehigh family. I want to catch up with all things Dead Dog, drink in the cool Cornish air and look at the stars. The thing about spending time away is, it makes you value what you have even more highly.
"Kneehigh, I'm coming home! x x"
