Rob Goodman - A Journey with Your Daemon
"It is my contention that we each have within us an infinite potential that can be tapped into instantly. It is an aspect of us that is all knowing, and is never wrong. In any situation we only have to listen and trust. Of course it takes a little practise to distinguish 'it' from general mind chatter. Known by the ancient Greeks as 'The daemon', it is the architect of our being, and of our personalities: It is our sensory awareness.
"Because we experience the world through our senses, and through our personalities, then there can be no mistakes if we allow the daemon to sit in the driving seat. We only have to get out of our own way.
"It is our link to the divine and is unconditional: It is our best friend, and will never let us down, and he or she is waiting for you: allow me to introduce you." - Rob Goodman
"Robert Goodman has created a magical journey from the White Cliffs to Bloomsbury: Join him, and you will be favorably changed."
After Robert's performance of his one man show (which he wrote), entitled A Journey with Your Daemon Gail Nina Anderson wrote for FORTEAN TIMES:
"..an engaging performance piece from actor Robert Goodman about the psychgeography of Albion, where our inner daemons, (Ancient Greek style spiritual selves rather than spawn of hell), were invited to develope a magically charged sense of place by travelling from the White Cliffs to Hoxton via just the sort of weird associations of locality, character and history on which forteans thrive.
From Alan Moore
Perhaps the most genuinely unforgettable face of his generation, his recent expansion into writing both for publication and for his own unique performances, should go some way to bringing this talented artist the recognition which he so richly deserves.
This from The Templers Theatre
When Robert Goodman held his entire audience spellbound, we knew we were very lucky that he'd had the time to perform for us. He had written the piece too - which may have helped with his fluidity as he changed character and mood flawlessly. That evening we were taken back a thousand years and brought forward 90 miles and into our seats.Every one there 'saw' his characters and believed their stories through Robert's charm and skill. For a genuine silence before long applause, the performance has to be exceptional. Robert Goodman's was and is memorable because of that.

And from Jon Tapsell of Occulture TV
Movie/Theatre Actor, raconteur, writer, psychogeographer, and esoteric adventurer: Robert is a man of many guises. Encountering one of his rich performances is like discovering a secret lush garden inside a barren industrial wasteland: colour, life, magic and art come to life once more. His performances have been honed by such luminaries as Luc Besson, Martin Scorcese and Nicholas Roeg to name a few, and draw upon many strange but wonderful influences, transporting the audience into a new uncharted mindscape. His membership of the (no new members) Moon and Serpent Grand Egyptian Theatre of Marvels sums up this envoy from an abstract world, and this coupled with performances such as 'A Journey with your Daimon' where the end performance seems to terminate inside your own mind, make one of the most gifted, original acting and writing talents in the UK -thankfully one that has yet remained outside of the commercial wasteland.
