Notable Quotable: Kota Yamazaki on the artist's role in the community

"I believe that the artist can propose new perspectives and expand existing perspectives. The artist should act as a kind of mediator of a different culture and field to the public. I believe art can really do that, and at times can transcend past politics or cultural barriers. I believe a choreographer is very similar to an architect. Like an architect, the choreographer must think of the design of what he creates, and consider how people will interact within this environment." --Kota Yamazaki
