A little reading: FOREVER EMERGING

In preparation for Dancing Monkey’s upcoming production of Karl Nimeni is not Dead – I Killed Karl Nimeni, Mike Czuba shared some thoughts with Intermission Magazine about process, making art and identifying as an artist.

https://www.intermissionmagazine.ca/artist-perspective/forever-emerging/

“I’ve been an artist for so long that there is very little separation between my art and my life. I am my art now. My art informs my decisions, my perspectives about the world, and my relationships, oftentimes to their detriment. If my art has plateaued—if I have plateaued, if I never become professional—how do I move forward? Turning the page and telling myself that I had a good run doesn’t feel like a constructive or even healthy option.”
