What is the role of art in our society?

Video from YouTube

Would art be able to change a person's life?
I know that it might sound a rhetoric question.
From my perspective is a sincere wondering!
Art has a wide range of possible meaning, and theatre for me is one of them which has been able to influence the last two decades of my life. 

It's been able to become an inspiration; to push me seeing life from other angles; to touch me deep inside; to focus much more on some values such as honesty, loyalty, sincerity and dignity; and to remind me about my past experiences.
I strongly believe that any kind of art has the power of making a positive and constructive impact on our attitude.

I've had the privilege of enjoying various characters and stories which have helped me to understand a bit more about my personality and how to deal with good and bad moments of my daily routine. 
I also think that art can give us an amazing support for fighting against stereotypes and showing that, in real life there might have been more aspects which deserve to be taken in consideration, before saying something about someone else so in the end, it can be a crucial ally against any discrimination.

It can also become a common way to be able to communicate with people who speak different languages, but for ex. share the same emotions and passion for painting or pop music or opera, and so on.
On my view, thanks to all of that we might be able to overcome cultural barriers that we built in our mind to try to make our life a safer and better place!
One day thanks to art we'll realize that it was an illusion and at some point, we're going to feel as if we've been woken up by an unexpected event which will be able to change everything, "art"!
These are some pictures of plays which I saw during last few years:

Edipo a Colono
Edipo Re_Edipo a Colono
The Man with the..

Life of Galileo
These Ghosts

I don't have suggestions to make but the purpose of those reflections has been simply to share my personal experience.
I can say to you all that, if after enjoying something that helped you to feel better maybe, you can try to find out more about it!

I wish you all the best!
