I have pretty much had enough of the comedy-only entertainment. This is not news for many of you, but I appear not to have mentioned it here yet. I am not sure regarding other countries but in Finland for certain, if it doesn't make you laugh your ass of, not too many bother with a movie, show, play or anything related. However, when it comes to literature, dark themes still sell well. Why is it okay to read a book that makes you feel anything but happy, but it's not okay to watch - for example - a theatre performance with such themes? I'm pulling my hair out here.

Seriously, it's not that I don't understand the wish to let go of the worries, to let loose, to just plain laugh at stupidity. I do get it. I need my dose of happy things daily, too. Still, do those take my mind off of the daily worries? Only for a moment. The world obviously has issues but as the people we watch on the screen are such happy-go-lucky folks, our own lives begin to seem way, way darker than they are. Unnecessary drama is unnecessary, but a dose of "Shit gets real" is something I figure many of us need. We could do so much more if only the self-centered thinking would go out of fashion.

Currently the play I am in involves the very serious themes of bullying, loneliness, sexual abuse, even rape. We make the audience feel anxiety, worry, sadness, even terror. We make them cry. But the kind of comments, views and faces we see after are not those of people who have fallen into desparation: we get thank you's, we're told our performance touched them deeply, that it made them think, that they feel as if a weight has been lifted off their shoulders and that it's almost as if they have been cleansed of something they didn't even realize had accumulated on them.

I wish more people would come to realize that sorrow and all the other negative emotions need to also be let out there, instead of being held deep inside our heads and hearts. Instead of the farce, why not watch a full on drama every now and then?

Real close to whitewashing something that's been important for years. Writing this here so I won't do it. Not that I ever get anything done anyway.
A premiere tomorrow, or actually, today, woooo~ ;)
The combination of Kingdom Hearts, Frozen and Inuyasha fandom feels reeaaaallly interesting... xDD
