Patric here. Thank you for dropping by and seeing my work! I have a story for you.
I was sitting in a workshop one day and the facilitator asked the class to put why we do theatre into a five-word phrase; "why bother," he asked. My answer was simple. "I bother because creation connects." A simple idea, to connect, but after many connections, you look at the big picture and have somehow created an entire network. A network connecting you to your actors, to the story, to other designers and collaborators, to yourself, and most importantly, to the receptor of the message. The more we connect, the more we are able to relate to one another; something vastly needed in our world today. I want to create work that makes a lasting impact and leaves them (audience/reader) with a positively perpetuating message. I want to create works that disturb, disrupt, engages, enlightens, inspire, comfort, and most importantly, will bring culture to consciousness. As human beings, we in this life are charged with teaching each other so that the future is brighter than the past.
I look forward to learning with you!
