Cultural Life: Edward watson, dancer
Friday 19 March 2010
My fellow Royal Ballet Principal Sarah Lamb introduced me to the work of David Sedaris and I've loved reading and laughing out loud to 'When You Are Engulfed in Flames', his fantastic book of short stories.
'God's Garden' in the Linbury Studio Theatre was a piece by the ever-inventive Arthur Pita. Based on the parable of the Prodigal Son, it was an incredibly witty piece, with great movement, energy and wonderful, colourful sets by Jean-Marc Puissant.
I'm a huge fan of Martha Wainwright's voice. She has that ability to make you live every word with her, so her Piaf record is a must.
After a season of performing dark tragedies myself, I loved going to watch 'The Little Dog Laughed' at the Garrick Theatre, for some light relief. The writing is fast and funny and has an amazing central performance from Tamsin Greig.
I'm really into 'EastEnders' at the moment. It killed me waiting to find out who killed Archie Mitchell!
