serve the process. feed your practice. protect your practice. strengthen your vocals. move your body in ways that give you agency and power. reclaim each stage. reclaim each space. advocate. persist. resist. remember your voice is vital. do not surrender to the canon. stretch your boundaries. respect your boundaries. let your heart hold this thought: you do not need a stage to do the work of making theatre. Compassion and consciousness is not earned through a show ticket.
