Fashion and Theatrics has always transformed societies. It’s part of the culture, and it demonstrates our legacy. I dare to say everyone is inspired by these two things. It takes inspiration to continue to manifest creativity in our personal and professional lives.
Here are some fashion & theatre quotes I live by within my world:
Viola Spolin (1963). “Improvisation for the Theater: A Handbook of Teaching and Directing Techniques”
“Through spontaneity we are re-formed into ourselves. It creates an explosion that for the moment frees us from handed-down frames of reference, memory choked with old facts and information and undigested theories and techniques of other people’s findings. Spontaneity is the moment of personal freedom when we are faced with reality, and see it, explore it and act accordingly. In this reality the bits and pieces of ourselves function as an organic whole. It is the time of discovery, of experiencing, of creative expression.”
“If the environment permits it, anyone can learn whatever he chooses to learn, and if the individual permits it, the environment will teach him everything it has to teach.”
“We learn through experience and experiencing, and no one teaches anyone anything.”
Augusto Boal- Theatre of the oppressed
“Games for Actors and non-Actors”. (1992). Book by Augusto Boal.
Theatre is a form of knowledge; it should and can also be a means of transforming society. Theatre can help us build our future, rather than just waiting for it.
