Acting on test results in an electronic world

By Laura Jane Dean

“I’m in a big, cold, mostly empty, disused shop in Folkestone, alone, surrounded by lots of pieces of coloured card which were scribbled on yesterday, two wooden chairs, a list of things to write, and my medical file from the Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma. A medical record, neater and more compact than I expected it to be, containing all the necessary information and data, for the sixteen weeks I spent undergoing cognitive behavioural therapy. I pick it up, and start reading it, out loud.” Laura will be at BAC with her show Head Hand Head on the 21st & 22nd of March.

In this discussion, hosted by Dick McCaw at the Southbank Centre, Bowart discusses trade secrets, the nature of the clown, and his 99-year-old grandmother-in-law’s take on his work.
