You have an Australian premier of The Crossing coming up (in Supercell on Feb 17) next month, can you tell us a bit about the show and what it means to you? 

The Crossing explores power and feeling strong, feeling anger, losing yourself feeling sad and feeling support.  The Crossing is important to me because it makes me feel like a man, Gavin treats me like a man. i love to focus and listen.

Any highlights with the touring that you have done for both The Battle and The Crossing?

Feeling responsible going to different places.

In Chile i loved Valparaiso winding up together and supporting each other.

What advantages does the performer with Down Syndrome have over the performer without?

I just know i have to be brave in myself. Trust is pulling yourself in like a net and pulling yourself out being a responsible man.
