Explaining the arts during a pandemic to a 4 year old

“Mummy, will you perform in a museum? “

“It was meant to be in the Museum of Belgium, but NOW it will be in a theatre.”

“How many people are going to clap?”

“There will be millions watching online, they might smile not clap, but only a few in the theatre, to keep everyone safe.”

“How many chairs are there?”

“250 tickets were sold then returned. Now only tech crew will be watching in the theatre. Everyone else in the world can watch on their screens.”

“So…. the theatre is 250 bigger than us!” (She throws her arms wide.)

“Yes, that’s exactly how big the theatre is.”
