“I think my grandfather may have the correct approach to art. He’s had a long career, and in his retirement he’s been working on building a boat. I doubt he’ll ever finish it, but I don’t think that’s particularly important to him. He wakes up every morning, drinks his cup of coffee, then goes out to his workshop to sand a tiny portion of wood. He doesn’t need to finish that boat to pay the rent. He can afford to have some distance from it, so he gets to enjoy it. He looks at that boat tenderly, like he looks at his grandkids. He gets to have a dream without the necessity of achieving it.”
I love the theatre because of the demands it makes on an audience - to lean forward, to suspend disbelief and to enter into something. And that is what is so truly thrilling for me; this collective agreement that happens. I suppose it’s kind of like church, in the best possible sense of the word - of people sort of communally coming there to sit together, to kneel together, to stand up together… and that’s why I love this medium. That’s what I look for, I look for communion.— Jefferson Mays (via bottomsup-jeffersonmays)
