Poetic Larceny Artists Reveal #9 -- Anthony Wills, Jr
What is Poetic Larceny?
And how can I learn more about Flux's upcoming production of Pretty Theft?
ANTHONY WILLS, JR.
Actor, April 13th
Previous Flux stuff: An actor in last year's Imagination Compact, Anthony has participated in a number of Flux Sundays
We asked the amazing artists of our upcoming staged reading series Poetic Larceny to answer some questions about stealing, beauty, and consequences. Read on for their answers!
Question #1: What is the worst thing you've ever stolen?
I once was taken on a shopping spree by someone who claimed to be "in love" with me I later found out he had been using a stolen credit card. (I didn't return a thing though... oops)
I once had over a hundred paintings stolen. They were mostly mine but they also included my favorite painting by a friend of mine. I stopped painting for over a year after the incident.
I hate the word "pretty". It's almost as bad as "cute". I guess I would find anything that is almost aesthetically pleasing but absolutely lacking in substance or worthiness "pretty"
Everything especially the things you find balled up and discarded by someone else who did not recognize it's beauty (I'm really not as big of a hippy as that sounded but it is what first came to my mind)
Question #5: If you could steal something beautiful without consequences, what would it be?
