MY CORE TRUTHS OF ART IN 20174/30/2017
I want to create the kind of art that makes people sweat from their soul.
I want to create art that makes the impossible feel possible in the room. We have to let the impossible feel possible for the artists involved and the audience watching it. I want to hear that we can. I want to FEEL that we can.
I want to create art that makes people feel ZERO shame about the sex they're having and how they're having it and who they're having it with (unless they're hurting people, in which case, fuck that.)
I want to make space for the unexpected for the genius moments rather than the clean ones.
If I'm not there to feel more connected to something, to other human beings, than I don't know why I'm there.
I want to create art with vulnerability.
I want it to be okay to cry in the rooms I'm in.
I want to have dance parties in my underwear with my collaborators.
I want to make life better for people.
I want to see people, and I want people to see me.
I want to make people laugh.
I want to people to make me laugh.
I want to stand on stage and point blank ask, "is this serving my ego, or truly, serving a higher purpose?"
I want to like you.
I want you to like me.
I want to make love possible.
I want to say "I'm sensitive about my shit."
I want to dream big about love. About connection. About friendship.
I want to take the social anxiety I feel in real life and throw it away in my art. I want to feel the lack of anxiety I feel in my art, and bring it in my social life.
I want the art I create to feel like a breath of fresh air.
I want the art I create to feel like vulnerability will save us all.
I want the theatre I make to create a community of each group of audience members. I want to personalize each performance to them. I want to speak directly to them. I want them to speak directly to me. I want my art to make me a kinder person.
I want the art I make to feel larger than life because life can feel small and so stupid sometimes.
I want to have great sex after I perform.
