Described in the press as ‘the saddest week in showbiz’ following the tragic deaths of David Bowie and Alan Rickman and more… this showcase has a melancholy feel. Sadness has its place, despair is universal. However, this is a showcase not for the conflicted chronicler, it is one for us all to love and appreciate all of the formidable obstacles that lay ahead of us, to find solace and to share compassion and insight.

“A tip of my Stetson Hat to David Bowie, who somehow lived and died on his own terms, wildly creative, talented, and original.
Q: What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
Bowie: Living in fear. (Vanity Fair, 1998)

“The truth is, of course, that there is no journey. We are arriving and departing, all at the same time.”
