Tales from the Script
In another segment, she recalls her experiences while walking around in circles onstage, as if to suggest that she does not know where she is heading in life. The simple set - a plain backdrop with a couch, armchair and bicycle as the main props - also hints at an emptiness that engulfs and threatens to consume her, an unthinkably heartbreaking loss that she cannot articulate, let alone overcome. Risa, as she readily admits herself, is a liar, although not in a law-breaking, scandalous sort of way.
Rather, the mildness and highly relatable nature of her lies seems to suggest that everyone is a liar.
Her lies run the gamut of grandiose embellishments made to justify her own actions, to reflexive defensiveness that serve to solidify the mental block within. There are also white lies, lies by omission or those that originate from a lack of courage to speak the truth. The production delves into deep psychological tensions, but Michelle Tan's script has a lightness and optimism, with a dash of self-deprecating humour and razor-sharp sarcasm - which keeps Risa likable throughout.

I Am Trying To Say Something True: Probing play on truth lightened by script
Educators, Samandi said, have to shake up how they teach business and entrepreneurship. For example, if a kid wants to sell a candy bar, that breaks the rules.
- Rumbo al Zoológico – Inglés Para Niños, Español/Inglés (Spanish Edition).
- Jamaica - Montego Bay, Port Antonio & Ocho Rios (Travel Adventures).
- The Heiresss Bitch (A Breeding, Futanari, Lesbian, BDSM Erotic Romance).
- Michel Vaillant - tome 24 - Cauchemar (French Edition)?
That stifles creativity and entrepreneurship. It makes it hard in that environment for entrepreneurial thinking to thrive. The environment really promotes conformity.

Thinking outside the standardized test? Trying something that very likely will fail the first few times? Specifically disregarding received wisdom and undermining the old way?
These are all keys to succeeding in entrepreneurship and fast-moving businesses, but these behaviors are total transcript-crushers in a traditional educational setting. On the other hand, traditional schooling rewards skills that would be career-destroyers in many businesses: Stay in neat rows, stick to your own lane. Remain silent. Work alone for long periods of time, quietly producing long-form texts based on classic ideas from 20, 50 or years ago. What are we doing — training kids for a monastic life?
Reel Story: You Need the Truth
Key partners include public school districts, higher education institutions, and local employers from target industries. We heard pitches from: Two marketing and lead-generation startups using artificial intelligence and chat-bots An alternative finance company providing short-term loans through payroll A primary-care, AI-driven, mobile app for diagnosing dementia early and cheaply An improved-design, meditation cushion A veteran-workforce concierge car service for service stations An experiential-learning app for managers to design a customer-service experience.
