Can art save us?
Art requires us to slow down and contemplate our being, and great art implores us to question our finite perception of the infinite. As a performing artist, I’m constantly asking myself how I can be my best ‘self’, if such a thing matters in the grand scheme of things. Then the realisation comes - perhaps that very process itself, is the way for all the hope and good in the world.
