dramatic / theme
Sit up and take notice! No, stand! Use your eyes, your ears, your sense of smell and touch! Respond! You will not be allowed to turn away from this, the dramatic. It demands. It is oversized, saturated, excessive, designed to capture and retain the minds of its audience. It flourishes and thrives on audience. The dramatic deploys all the tools of the trade with astute precision: rhythm, line, form, and dynamic are at its fingertips. It won't take no for an answer.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
