the message: “This is such a difficult time for live entertainment and many artists, technicians, artisans and craftswomen have struggled in a profession already full of insecurities. Perhaps this ever-present insecurity has made them more capable of surviving this pandemic with intelligence and courage. Their imaginations have already translated, in these new circumstances, into creative, fun and touching ways of communicating, of course mainly thanks to the internet. Since they existed on the planet, humans have been telling each other stories. The beautiful culture of theater will live on as long as we are there. The creative urgency of writers, designers, dancers, singers, actors, musicians, directors will never be stifled and will flourish in the near future with a new energy and a new understanding of the world that we all share. I can not wait!
