contrast & contradiction...



..... it is worth noting that everything we do in our profession i.e. sharing a story – theatre, film making etc is a contradiction. What we are doing is not real, it is not actually a real event, by this I mean we are dramatising a moment/s of life, yet what we are doing is a really happening – the whole process of making art is or rather could be debated as being unreal and yet real – hence my proposition it is a contradiction. My reason for bringing this up is because as an artists in this world, let’s call this world; make believe – in this world of make believe as an actor trying to make sense of my work within this contradiction I need to almost create a reality or sometimes I just call it “tricking” myself – I need this unreal world to feel real to me in order for it to make sense so some part of brain in order for me to have logical reactions to what appears to be chaotic and random.... to be continued.....
