Theater and Nations
“The theatre is one of the most expressive and useful instruments for building up a country, it is the barometer of its greatest or decline. An intelligent theatre, well orientated in all its branches … can change the sensibility of people within a few years; a disintegrated theatre, with clumsy hooves instead of wings, can cheapen and lull into sleep an entire nation.”
–Federico García Lorca
from this article.
My question today: what are we doing as an industry to change the sensibility of the people? and what is the sensibility that we need to change?
