Here are just a few examples:

As an audience member, I respect the work by:

  • Sending good vibes
  • Giving notes at rehearsal
  • Introducing my daughter to the artists and asking them to tell her about their job
  • Thanking the artist
  • Telling others about events including via social media
  • Researching the artist online
  • Attending
  • Being influenced by their work
  • Offering to help
  • Supporting financially, emotionally, etc.
  • Applauding
  • Making space for others at the event
  • Reading (or not) reading reviews
  • Wearing their t-shirts
  • Paying artists
  • Telling others
  • Forwarding (or not) forwarding reviews
  • Showing up to the performance
  • Offering congratulations
  • Turning. Off. Cell. Phone.

As an artist, this is when I’ve felt my work was respected:

  • I’m taken seriously. This is not a hobby.I’m actually trying to make work as an artist.
  • When people express enthusiasm and excitement about the project
  • “I really like it when…”
  • “I’d like to talk to you about…”
  • Gratitude! When people express gratitude for my work and my effort — when people recognize the effort!
  • Curiosity! “How’s that going? What are you doing?”
  • Help! “How can I help?”
  • When the artists I work with want to work with me again
  • When people who don’t like my work come anyway, try to find something positive, or engage in conversation with me
  • Audience members understand or take into consideration the limitations on the work that I’m making — the time, energy, resources, obstacles that prevent me from making work that is equivalent to DPAC in it’s scale.
  • Audience members understand or take into consideration the goals and life of the piece (whether it’s a new work or in development or made with community or whatever)
  • I’m given honest, specific feedback (after I request it or after the post-show hangover).
  • No one complains about the ticket prices.
  • People come to see it
  • People bring a friend
  • Applause
  • Standing ovation
  • I receive a message after, or people wait to see me after
  • Friends publicly announce positive feedback on social media
