    James Burke had a great show "Connections" & recall him talking about impact of plague taking out 1/3 of Europe: labor was worth more, so possible end to serfdom, scribes dead so tech stepped up with printing press, all that wealth of the dead went to the survivors. Yeah, horrible if 1/2 died, but can have unforeseen positive consequences. Maybe a new environmental awareness movement will rise up in China, India: peoples first taste of clean air might want them to want that on regular basis.

    How many people do you know irl compared to all the people whose existence is unknown to you?  Would your life really be that different if half the people on the planet disappeared?

    Yes, as long as stalwarts like Tommymc and Cogito were in the living half.

    Where there is life, there is hope. So yes, I would mourn the loss of loved ones but keep living.

    As long as my loved ones were still alive - yes.

    But what has this got to do with Performing Arts?

      "dance of death" as it used to be referred as?

    It would depend on who had died and who'd stayed alive, as well as the circumstances.
