Wayne Sleep: ‘My hair is a problem. I look like a mangy cat’

The dancer and choreographer on his dry skin, big toes and footwear

I am usually late for everything, except my performances – they are sacred. The one thing I can do that a lot of people can’t is catnap. If I am thinking, “Oh God, I don’t know if I am going to have the strength for tonight”, I lie on the floor – it can’t be a bed – and put my feet up on a chair. Lie like that for 10 minutes and it’s as good as four hours’ sleep.

I have very dry skin, so I have to put on cream every day; Clarins for the body and men’s Clinique for the face, which gives a bit of lustre. My hair is a problem. I have bits of dark grey, bits of brown and bald spots. I look like a mangy cat. I also have white hair, so I go to a salon once a month, or once every two weeks if I am working, and I get it bleached all the same colour – white. It takes two hours, and it’s so boring.
