RADA Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, London UK

Yesterday evening I went to the D&D event ‘What can we do to better support diverse drama school students whilst in training’ at RADA Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London.

Louis, Becky, Valerie and Sarah came to make dolls. They started but I finished most of them, 5 dolls in total.

I was asked about their colour, it usually happen, they are the colour of our bones, no matter our skin colour, we are the same bones.

I suddenly realised that if we were robots we wouldn’t make these dolls. It felt like an insight, a live truth, it made me happy.

I guess I probably understood the ‘they’ pronoun-gender. I thought it meant I was a man and a woman at the same time, no, it can mean I am not a woman neither a man.

I love the simplicity that we are not robots + we have no gender – we are humans, it’s so good to remember it.

Thank you Ben, Sarah and everybody for another brilliant event, thank you!
