  1. Hmm. There’s an interesting debate that was raging on the fledgling Torontocomedy.com boards for a few weeks. A producer posted on the stand-up section soliciting for performers to perform (for free) at his grass roots arts festival, and the thread quickly evolved into a passionate debate about when it’s appropriate for performers to do so free of charge, the sacrifices they make, the nature of being a performer in Canada, etc. A number of actors, dancers, and other performers who’d performed at the festival previously weighed in on the debate, and I think it’s a fascinating read for any Canadian performer. Here’s the link:

    With regards to suffering, there’s quite a few references to what people have done for their art, and how they’ve gone through lean times – or how they’ve avoided doing so.
