How do you define what a soul is?

Most of us think we have one, but what does that actually mean? The word "soul" is defined in the Oxford dictionary as "the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being." It's also an energy that can be revealed by a work of art — through drag performances and origami, in the lines of poems and in the movements of dance. In today's episode, we meet artists who are all soul searching in different ways.
