Season 3: Episode 1
Performance Artist Tone Haldrup Lorenzen talks about her first solo and overcoming the voice in her head.
Many of us have a voice in our head that keeps us from doing our work. Tone Haldrup Lorenzen, a performance artist, director and co-founder of the feminist theater, had such a voice.
This season I am talking to artists about their first solo show. Tone shares about overcoming this destructive voice and pushing forward, performing her first solo and shortly after that directing her first theater productions. She shares about learning from the bumps along the way and finding that letting go can allow for the work to come through in unexpected ways.
I had a professor once who said you have to say hello to your demons. They keep you on track. “Are you being brave enough? Are you taking enough risk?” But it should push you forward, not stop you.
