1st April 2022 22:45 - Ways of Being Episode 5 of 5

In this series, artists, writers and thinkers tell us about the ways they have been shaped by their ‘ways of being’, their individual bodies – what freedoms they allow, and their sensitivities or limits. They also explore how their work has been shaped and informed by the body, its freedoms and limits. As many creative people have discovered - limits can lead to originality, and freedoms can offer ‘more of the same’.

Tom is the fifth essayist to let us into their particular 'way of being' and into their relationship with a cultural touchstone - whether it’s a poem, a singer, a television series, or a story from the Bible – each tells us about something that has enriched their own creativity, and brought them closer to understanding their own way of being.
