we need to have faith in our trade!
I think art is expression, further if done properly it is the expression of a community.
and I think it is our obligation as artists to try and do the best job we can to express ourselves.
and think I in the u.s. street performer's scene we are lacking in the quantity of street performers and the quality that a nation with the reputation we have in the world should have.
when I have travelled around I was amazed at what the world was offering in street entertainment...then I came home and reality hit me in the face.
what was the difference?
they had commitment to their art as an expression of their nation.
ironically we americans are known for our gumption, so what happened here?
as entertainers we lost faith in our trade.
evertime a person blindly follows the way of street performing and has complete faith in the way of street performing they have made a living.
the beauty is you sink or swim
like any other business if you do your home work and keep giving it your best shot it can and will work.
