Among different works of art, I've always enjoyed music & theatre more than others, esp. because they are performed on the stage ...

In this way, one can see the process of creation of the art from the beginning to the end ... This usually doesn't happen for other works of art ... though it might be possible, it's rare ...

One usually doesn't see the process of a work of art from the beginning to the end: we don't feel like sitting beside an artist & see what she is drawing or sitting beside a novelist & share the experience of writing with her, we prefer seeing these works when they're complete, but it's not the same with music & theatre: we see these works from the beginning to the end & share the joy with the creators as well as the performers ...

During the creation of a painting or a novel, the creator is allowed to make any changes, but it's not possible when a play or a music concert is performed:the creator has created them & now there are the performers who with great talent, concentration & attention perform it ...

Hallo Chacky,

When I lived in Paris I went from time to time to a theater "Bataclan".There you could see "théâtre improvisé", improvised performances.

The actors decided on the spot what to say and what to do. Sometimes very funny, sometimes boring.

And in jazz they have also this idea of improvisation. A musician gives a string of notes and the musicians improvise on it. Frequently very good and entertaining.
