TBD With LDT, Ep. 11 — “‘Shut Up and Do Your Job:’ Debunking the Dehumanization of Artists”

RELEASE DATE:  February 26, 2018

What is the job of an artist — an actor, a writer, a musician, a dancer, etc? What do people REALLY mean when they tell an artist to “shut up and do your job?” What does it mean when someone tells an actor “just shut up and say your lines–leave the politics out of it…I didn’t pay for you to mouth off about your beliefs,” or any number of dehumanizing commands? In this episode, I sound off on why this particular line of critique really gets under my skin, and I give a little history lesson on just how interconnected politics and art has always been.
