Shifting Gears

So… we may not be gathering in the same way for a while. Us theatre folks are kind of wondering when things might get back to what they were. I’m seeing a decent amount of worry and it’s understandable. Artists face a severe lack of funding and stability as it is… adding a pandemic on top of that doesn’t help.

But to be creative is to be inventive. There’s a new problem, and we can look outside the darkened, seat-filled box to solve it. Storytelling and community building exist in other forms. To deny that is to perpetuate the concern and refrain from addressing it.

When we face challenges like these we have to be willing to shift gears and keep looking at them from multiple angles. How can we continue gathering and sharing stories despite buildings having to close or limit entry? There are answers. We may just have to invent some.
