Cally Spooner reflects on the conventions of speech and direct communication in the new work I Have Been ill-advised by my Scriptwriter (2012) which presents a performance about the act of impromptu thinking and speaking. This new work takes the form of a lecture on how to speak publicly, investigating the possibility of communication as a non goal-oriented activity.
