AND don't get me wrong...we have MANY inspiring artists here in Canada...there is just more per capita there...and work that is considered "outside the box" here has a greater chance at a wider audience there...it just does.
Oh, I forgot...I REALLY wish that there were fewer articles like this...
And fewer "journalists" like this...simply, if you have a distaste for the theatre, Sue-Ann, don't come...and don't approach artists after the show and criticize their work...to their faces...yes, just stay away...you will be happier and so will we. Don't mess with something you know nothing about. I love people like you who think artists should bow and scrape and be thankful for whatever arts scraps we get thrown from a government that we contribute our taxes to.
Art is beautiful. Art is necessary. Art makes you think outside of the box and encourages young minds to dream. But don't take my word for it....
“The arts are not just a nice thing to have or to do if there is free time or if one can afford it. Rather, paintings and poetry, music and fashion, design and dialogue, they all define who we are as a people and provide an account of our history for the next generation.”
- Michelle Obama
So much to be grateful for and so much to hope for.
