I have had several discussions with directors over the last few days about the role of obsession and dedication in any creative career. Are the people who succeed invariably those who give every waking moment to their art, or is it the people who can stand back from their work and find balance in their lives who eventually triumph? It’s a thorny issue, as there are always more people to meet, more shows to see and more forms to fill in. Or perhaps the very idea of balance is laughable?
