Still Trying is a reflection on the sacrifices that dancers and other creatives make to please others, often at the expense of their own wellbeing. In certain artistic spaces, there is an unspoken expectation that artists should be willing to give up their time, energy, and sometimes even their safety in service of their artwork. This piece serves to examine the pressures that come with this expectation and the risks of giving into these pressures.
