"Saying No isn't a dead-end in the creative process. A performer can offer a counter proposal of something they are more comfortable with. It should stimulate conversation, collaboration & creativity, not end it.
The FEAR of saying no or receiving a no is the vision killer. The fear blocks us, not the 'No' itself. Therefore we must change our perception of the 'No'. Let it be said and taken so we can create better together."
