Last quote by Diane Paulus

The act of showing up is a civic ritual with great power. The ancient Greeks knew this. In their theaters, which seated over 10,000 people, audiences wrestled collectively with stories of utmost importance to the state. In other times and places, too, from Sanskrit drama to Shakespeare's Globe, the theater's ability to assemble has always been viewed as inherently political, and potent.feedback
