William Shakespeare is claimed to have said: “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances.”
It may turn out to be funny and,
possibly, dramatic—just as the real, ideal theatre should be—where in a
seemingly consensual and idyllic artistic world everyone’s only waiting for someone else to forget their
lines and share the fate of a lead balloon.
All the signs are that the artists will the enter the stage to exit it eventually. They will probably do so on their own, although they may happen to be assisted or removed by force.
Not unlikely, only the memory of the artists will endure, while this play shall pass and find its honoured place in the deepest abyss of the theatrical quagmire; the spectator will be hoodwinked and made a fool of, remembering no more than the glass of wine they drank afterwards.
Tongue-in-cheek, Intermezzo is dedicated to all artists, especially those unfulfilled who continually hoping that “the next one” might finally be their big break.
