About Eric

Bio

I am currently 17 years old, and a senior in High school in a small town. My hobbies include playing soccer,volleyball, and doing martial arts; along with acting and doing and enjoying art. I am an extrovert, and I am constantly in search of more knowledge or new experiences. I love to read and to speak and listen. Sometimes I speak to much, but I attribute that to age.

I'm passionate about

Martial arts and the personal space. Making real connections both with myself and others. Hearing and telling stories.

Talk to me about

Everything. I mean it, even if it is to say hello. Tell me a story, teach me something new, argue with me. Fill me up, because I am empty right now.

The modern duty of theatre.
Both Wayne Uejio and Sean Brother have hit the nail on the head, I think. Theatre is first and foremost and entertainment. But that is not to belittle it, the art from of Theatre is incredibly important to the human condition. Like Sean Brother said before, it gives us a chance to look at ourselves; the play or production puts a small facet of the human experience under the microscope. The audience receives entertainment, and the actor can receive the beautiful experience of existing as someone else. But first and foremost it is all entertainment. And as the years go by, you do see this switch in Theatre, as you see it in all other art forms. Both the artists and the audiences tastes change, and with the changing world we live in, it is becoming harder for theatre to draw in the crowds. That is not to say that theatre will ever be a dead medium, because I believe as long as there is the need for a man to connect to his fellow man, theatre will be present.

Is happiness internal or external?
I don't percieve happiness as just feeling good. I think happiness is feeling alive, that sensation of being in the moment and connecting. It is not just the feeling of good, because if you just search for that constantly then it loses its power, it is like the yin yang. Happiness is both feelings of goodness and feelings of sadness and pain, because they feed off each other and heighten the sensation of both. That being said, I believe that happiness is an internal sensation, much like conciousness. There are physical signs that we can attribute it too, like the chemicals and neurotransmitters in the brain, but it fully exists somewhere else. Though Happiness can be effected by external forces, ultimately it is the perception of the person that affects happiness, whether they choose to numb themselves or open themselves up to it.
