I am an Artist.
It took me a long time to say those words (and believe them).
When someone asks me what I do. I say “I work in theatre”. Or “I’m a costume designer”. Or any other industrious label you want to put on it so that it sounds like I’m actually doing instead of just being.
But I’m actually none of those of things really. I am an Artist.
Theatre just happens to be my medium. It is the instrument through which I tell the world the things I want to say.
I found this amazing TED talk today with poet Sarah Kay. Her medium in this segment happens to be Spoken Word Poetry but the message remains the same.
This Is My Theatre...
Happy World Theatre Day!!
