Each month, we feature an artist who has caught our attention. They could be in theatre, film, music or visual art. The point is we think they’re kick ass and you should know who they are.

P: In a super banal circumstances I had this Archimedes “Eureka!” moment where the structure of screenwriting became clear. It became apparent that books teach us to express ourselves in the wrong way.It should go:
1) have something to say;
2) find the appropriate form to express your idea;
3) find a story that gives your idea a form, a skeleton onto which you can build.
