LIVE ARTS FOR THE EVERYDAY – APPLICABLE THOUGHT #17 – Production

In live arts, production is the logistics department, dealing with the practicalities that are necessary in order to make work. It can seem like an unattractive and overwhelming job, but without production there would be nothing but ideas and inspirations. Practical aspects need to be taken care of in order to bring anything into existence. The I-Ching, an ancient Chinese divination and philosophy text, describes this synergy as the confluence of heaven and earth, of potential and materiality. There is no creation if one of them is lacking. Where am I in the continuum between creativity and practicality? How are these two aspects working to manifest my potential?
