Theatre is significant because it is a collective human experience. We can find nothing which resembles live experience because anything else misses the vibrancy which artists, makers, and audience members collectively produce, bringing it to life.
When reality and make belief collide they create a fantastic cocktail of art that is relatable and also can make you think critically, that can challenge you, that is emotionally stimulating and exciting.
In regards to real life, to us a as people we perform a similar collision. Beneath the surface of a lot people is their true reality. And what they show us is a facade and we see and belief in what we have been given.
If art is a form of expression but the unreal masquerades as the real to almost be deceptive... How do you respond to expressions of lies?
I could see warm light escaping onto the street from my destination. Excitement bubbling, I entered the room and was welcomed by pockets of people talking to each other. I smiled and nodded at the waitress, now a familiar face to each other. I noticed a tall man in the middle, wearing a suit and with a quiff of silvery grey hair on his head, immediately noticing me, the newcomer and spying the ukulele case on my shoulder. Although having said that, I did stand out. I'm five feet tall and was wearing a large wide brimmed black hat, with a baggy – meant to be meant in a stylish way – green wool coat, long hair draped around my shoulders and carrying a ukulele. If I was looking to blend into any sensible crowd now wasn't the time to do so.
