THE PHOENIX WITH SEVEN TALES
So thaaaaaaaaat's 1 gold ⭐️ for yoooou!
Every piece of theatre is radically political, whether you like it or not. Community Theatre may sometimes be loud and angry, othertimes preppy and heartwarming, but every piece stands for something, fights for something. I think artists are activists in a way, even in perceived passivity they are actively provoking, critiquing, commenting.
Sometimes as performers we indulge, or we perform for purposes that are only relevant to the Self. I said it before, there's nothing wrong with fancy theatre spaces preaching to the choir, but I think every theatre maker should see their craft as a viable tool to move the very people who may never step into theatre spaces we pride ourselves with. Making art in that manner is a deeply humbling process, and I'm so so so blessed to have been able to do that with some of the most powerful women on the face of this earth throughout this entire process.
Here's to all the beautiful Phoenixes pictured here. May our ironies never defeat us, may we rise again and again from the ashes, take flight and leave a blazing trail behind us as we paint the sky red.
