Long hours of dedicated work and close cooperation

[my photo-report on site]

This what it takes to prepare for the Chinese Opera performance to be offer to the public of Flushing New York on Sunday 15, 2015.  Even so this musicians & actors are none professional they rehersal is not less intense and passionate.

French folk singer Charles Trenet use to say ” a professional is an amateur who does only  ‘that’ [activity] ” . Meaning that the fact an ‘professional artist’ dedicated  his/her career to art does not make him/her less than remaing an amateur. True, amateurs are not being rewared with money, but then again many professional are not necessary  alway rewared either. IF a ‘professional’ artist does not remain an ‘amateur’ at heart, he/she is more likely to compromise, to get corrupt. …always with the same excuse of having to make a living. The ‘use’ of his/her art and achievement could be very mediocre.

With the arts, it is not hardly a question of ‘career’ and ‘time spending’ that matters,  but rather how much of his/her soul a person is willing to share or to offer with others …
