*call for indignation*
I have been invited to perform to the prestigious stage of Tribal Prague Festival, even the big opportunity this event is for me I had to refuse there conditions.
Even the show, selling ticket, they have no fees for professional and doesn’t take care of travel and accommodation. Here is my reply to them : .
« I think that is terrible, that you, as a performer and professional, traveling around the world, support and consent this discrimination towards artists to do not have they work recognize. .
I am sorry but I will not work for free, not for someone who consider my work doesn’t deserved 1€ and will let me pay for my coming, which leads to pay for my own performance and own work. .
You should as a performer, know that exposure doesn’t pay rent, costume, and hours of training. You fed the precarious condition of artist by your condition which has a consequence on our work to all, including you !
I will not endorse conditions that put my business at risk and depreciated. »
The only way to get out of this discrimination is to REFUSE ! Even if it is hard and everybody tell you "this is the way this system works", even if it is keeping you away from stage for a moment… REFUSING is the only way to make recognize our work for a REAL WORK !! Enought of these people and society who doesn’t respect my activity … .
