“The unexamined life is not worth living.” -so says Socrates. Theatre is an examination and exploration of the world around us. But since art is the product of inspiration, what happens when we aren’t inspired? It’s easy to conclude that all the great plays have been written, all the beststories have told, and all the good themes have been thoroughly investigated. And THIS is why we have a salon. We have a salon to spark our imaginations and feed off the enthusiasm of other artistically minded people. This, in turn, inspires us to examine the world with renewed incentive.
In other words, a salon is a gathering of people to discuss theatre who want to inspire each other. With a loose topic pertaining to theatre, perhaps “Halloween,” a discussion begins. It may linger for a while or move freely to another subject. Hilarious anecdotes will be told and confusing performances will be discussed but several times throughout the night someone will exclaim something like, “Holy crap, that made me realize how awesome it would be to make a musical version of ____” A salon is also a great place to get a feedback about something you’ve had brewing in the back of your mind for a long time.
But even if you aren’t trying write the next big play, talking about theatre with a group of creative, intelligent, and of course extremely good-looking people is inspiring none the less. And everyone is invited! Whether you have seen it all or new to the theatre scene, you are equally encouraged to come! The more people we have of different experience levels, interests, age, etc, the more interesting, hilarious and experimental the conversations become! Make Socrates proud and explore your life. Make it worth living! Salons are not to be missed. No preparation necessary. Inspiration will simply come!
