Nicholas Garlo

Interview Highlights
Q: How has the COVID-19 pandemic affected you as a performing artist?
I have been trying to expand my mental arsenal of tools. I am trying new things that I wouldn't normally do. I do think during this time it's the first time I have viewed the world this way. I never finished a to-do list and I got through it on day three of social distancing and from that point on I hit a wall. My brain is like what do I do now. How to figure out how you want to manifest that excess time and energy is very new for me.
