Explaining Art

I don't want to tell you what it is, or what it will be like. I don't want to explain, because that might ruin everything. Once I put it into words, it will slip from my grasp – I know that; I have tried before.  I will say: theatre, performance, art, story, moving, beautiful, and on their way from me to you each word will twist and crumble and break apart. So why come? Why risk your time and energy and hard-earned cash? I can only say: trust me, please. I can only say: you'll love it, it might change your life. They are not the right words. They are nowhere near the right words.
