Creative & Education

Hi All, sorry it has been a while, I am buried so deep at the moment that I can barely breathe. So even this is a bit of a cheat posting because I am just re-posting something I wrote a little while ago for work, hopefully it whets your appetite for more. We, at Interactive Scientific have noticed that VR has a MAJOR pull factor, when it comes to hyping up our company and our product and recently we have done work to show that working in a 3D digital space can enhance a number of education and research tasks. Truthfully […]

Virtual reality in Education

Hi all, it has been a while, I am sorry for being away so long, my brain, body, soul got sucked into a vortex of being a CEO for a start up company, I am still there but, somehow, I have found the head space to sit at my laptop and tell you about some things. For those of you that follow my social media it may not be a surprise to you that I have managed to find some space, for, you will know, I am in Finland – and one of the first things I found out when […]

Finding Space to be Excellent

Hi everyone I was going to write a serious blog today about women in science, it is a subject about which I have a lot to say and I have a lot of experience of. However, it is Saturday (now Sunday), it has been a long week and my heart and mind do not want to reach deeply into a subject that involves me having to delve into difficult times, try not to step on people’s toes and articulate my thoughts in a reasoned manner. For many reasons this is a topic that is not appropriate to tackle via a […]

A post NOT about women in science – by a ...

I have recently been spending some time in the chemistry department where I did my PhD and I heard through the grapevine that I was remembered for my fashion (note, not my research or my brilliant mind! More on that in the future). I was also told that it didn’t take much to be remembered for fashion sense in a chemistry department- having a colour palette of more than 2 shades my clothing choices counted as interesting (I didn’t say that, a chemistry academic did). I was also asked by a colleague where this whole fashion thing came from. I […]

What does fashion mean to you?

I am currently performing in a site specific piece of Theatre called M0028 (those are zeroes rather than the noise a cow makes), written by Turkish writer Kadri Ozcan, directed by Emel Holifield, designed by Sarah Warren and produced by SanaRt Theatre. The setting is a bunker, inhabited by Adam in a post-apocalyptic future brought on by major climate change catastrophes. Most people remained ignorant of the impacts of human activities (not too far from the truth, right?) until it was too late. I play Emma a young woman who is the assistant of Ethel, the wealthy woman who bought the […]

M0028: Future or fantasy

Last night was the first public showing of Investigation, a film that I star in, and I took the opportunity to give me the impetus I needed to update my showreel. So for your viewing pleasure, here is my new showreel. Be warned, the language in it is explicit from the offset so if you are sensitive to such things watch it with the sound down!

My new showreel

It was my birthday this week and  I use my birthday as a day to look back and see what I have accomplished over the year and take a deep breath before stepping into the next set of challenges hopefully getting older and wiser whilst I pass the anniversary of my birth. The past year has definitely been the best year of my life in many ways, I have found certain things pretty stressful but I do feel like I am getting more and more comfortable in my skin and working hard to make my life one that serves me and helps me […]

Another year older

Happy International Women's Day from Becky Sage
I have so much to say on this subject, but one thing about women is that we are not one thing. The women who I admire most are those who are open and honest about who they are in all their beautiful contradictions: I am sensitive I am thoughtful I am proud I am strong I am flexible I am hardworking I am relentlessly trying to be a better person I am empathetic I am energetic I am high-pitched I am petite I am aware of what you want from me I am aware of what you need I am […]

Happy International Women’s Day

A photo posted by becky (@faerietwink) on Mar 7, 2015 at 5:26am PST   In January and February I spent a period of time when I blogged everyday as part of “Come Blog With Me”. However, since the challenge stopped I have struggled to write and post, in fact I have struggled to even decide whether or not to write. This says a lot about me as a person, when I have someone watching me or some kind of validation to say “you should do that” then I just get my head down and get on with things, I don’t […]

Why do I need to write?

I’ve had a few days off blogging, mostly because the time has just disappeared. I returned from Dubai on Monday morning and went straight into a day of rehearsal followed by a day working on the Nano-Simbox and then straight into the opening night of STRIP. Somewhere in that time I also tried to fend off a cold and catch up on some missed sleep! I have never felt so nervous as I did before performing last night. I am very lucky not to really suffer with stage fright but I was harbouring a lot of butterflies in my tummy […]

Introducing the team that are involved in Romeo and Juliet, Dubai, I will add to this post with more biographical information in due course: Chris Constantine – Mercutio/Lord Montague As well as playing a crazy, loveable, engaging Mercutio and a contrasting Lord Montague Chris is also our resident documentary maker. I am in no scenes with Chris (apart from a tiny bit of dancing at the Capulet ball), which is a shame because I think that he is a really exciting actor. He is equally as loveable in real life as Mercutio, but not quite as insane. Follow on twitter: […]
