All the World’s a Stage
ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE
…and all people are merely players.
In life, we are both performer and audience at the same time, while society shapes the roles that we feel obliged to embody.
The title "All the world's a stage" alludes to Shakespeare's monolouge from the comedy "As you Like it", in which he compares life to a stage where we become actors of fictional roles. In each phase of life we are ought to play roles such as the infant, the schoolkid, the young lover, the fair grownup, the respected elder and lastly, at the end of a long life, a toothless child again.
The themes of societal expectation, belonging and the constant search for the true self crop up in the works of all four artists.
