LIVE ARTS FOR THE EVERYDAY – APPLICABLE THOUGHT #63 – Language

 A language is a system of signs used for communication. The human language made of words is one example. However, almost everything conjures up associatons, meanings and emotions and can be used a language. If everything that is part of a piece works synergically with everything else, it will be easier for the audience to access its code and its world of ideas. Sometimes we are saying something with our words while everything else about us says something completely different. Could this contradiction be pointing at a more complex picture? Or is one of our languages betraying our truth?

LIVE ARTS FOR THE EVERYDAY – APPLICABLE THOUGHT #59 – Research

Research is an important part of creating a piece. It will give the artist knowledge of the associations and implications of different aspects of the piece and will inform their choices in the creation process. Research is about opening possibilities. Creation is about choosing from these possibilities. At some point there has to be a transition from one stage of the work to the another. What do we need to know to do what we want to do? How much is enough? When are we ready to go into action?
