An Artists' Retreat.
In battle when a side retreats, it is either due to being defeated so, that they must absorb a loss in order to salvage what is left of their battalion or unit. It could also be a strategic maneuver to position themselves to where they might be able to do more harm.
Now, militaries and their weaponry, an Army, Armys' holds that responsibility on our Earth. In a hopeful vision of a future world, Artists would be the bravest and most noble warriors of a society. Defending what we hold to be most valuable! They would fight with words, and ideas, images and thoughts. Bombard with graphics and songs that destroy notions of conquer and rebuild visions of love, conversation and discovery.
It has been a long time, with many courtships in the past, but the time has arrived and I have been accepted to study with The LAByrinth Theatre Company in their Summer Intensive!!! I see this as an opportunity to do just this. Retreat. Not a move away, but a move towards. Towards this braver future. I will use this time away from this city to collect what I can, to give all I must and to share with those who just might believe the same.
I will be studying with great actors, directors, writers and storytellers of mediums yet unknown to me! This is a very real and important an opportunity to share my work and further find out how I can express myself as well as the thoughts and ideas of others.
1 week!! So many talents together for 1 week!!
