LIVE ARTS FOR THE EVERYDAY – APPLICABLE THOUGHT #61 – Authorship

The author (composer, choreographer or scriptwriter) is the creator of the piece. However, it can be argued that the performers who interpret the piece can make such substantial contributions that they become also co-creators of a specific version of the piece. We can think that the author is completely free to do what they want. To a certain extent this is true, but of course, not everything is possible. What one can imagine is conditioned by one’s experience and context. Also, sometimes it can be frustratingly impossible to materialize what one has imagined. In our lives we are also conditioned and we also face limitations. That is no reason to give up the possibility of going as far as we can in creating our own path through life.
