LIVE ARTS FOR THE EVERYDAY – APPLICABLE THOUGHT #65 – Flexibility

Of course, we can all imagine that dancers need to keep their bodies flexible in order to do their work. Actually, it’s important for all live artists to be flexible, and not just anatomically. Because of the nature of live arts, performers often have other jobs, projects overlap, different phases of the production process happen in different places and sometimes members of the team need to be replaced. This turns fitting everything together into a big feat, which can only be accomplished if everybody is flexible and willing to accommodate. Sometimes it’s necessary to stand firm by a plan in order to bring it to fruition. Sometimes the only way to make a plan succeed is to let go of certain aspects of the initial design and to adapt to evolving needs.
