5. Theatre

According to a wise man I know, theatre is the closest artform to gardening because they are both dictated by time. Once a house is built it becomes a relatively static object, as does a painting or a product. There is nothing static about a garden! It grows, evolves, changes, dies, re-shoots etcetera. The same could be said of a play – every performance of the same play is different.
