"Our society is set up to see education, and ritual, and theater, and art as separate engagements. Our schools are set up this way -- art is not math, when in fact they are completely intertwined. Science is creative, and yet we put science [in a separate box]. Drama is an elective. This is insane! They are all part of one conversation."
