This is my brain on dogs

So I just had a look at a pile of feedback from peers I got via a Bryony Kimmings workshop few years ago. As I work towards my new show, kind my first full length theatre show, this feedback from amazing artists is reminding me of what I have to offer and how I can be of service. Am posting it here as a reminder to self.
