Slowing down, stepping back, contemplating and reflecting... We've done all this but we would like to go back to creating somewhat normally, with each other, for people present, full houses etc. We were one of the first industries hit by the crisis and will be one of the last fully recovering. Many of us are depressed, ruined, have existential fears. We love what we are doing and we miss it.
Our art is not pure entertainment. We'd like to create, comment, deal and re-flect, experiment, or take our time. If many of us chose to make a move from the real stage to the online stage for a certain amount of time, we'd like you to know that we'd rather much have preferred to be with you. We'll continue to try out new forms that could feed into future works. We might fail in these experiments. That's the idea. Fail. Fail again. Fail better.
Please support your communities and artists in the best way you can.
The hard times aren't over yet, but we're in this together and we are doing the best we can to create, to comment, to explore even though the uncertainties might seem unbearable at times.
