Theater

Heartbeat_Choir_5-14_005.slide

I love that theater is illustrative and instructive.  Theater is almost unique as a vehicle to provide an echo of humanity.  Like a child marveling at the movement in an aquarium, we can watch emotions expressed that either mirror our own or antagonize us into new emotions.  And it changes us in an almost singular way by demonstrating behavior worthy of emulation or demanding condemnation.  It gives men permission and women communion.  And theater isn’t limited by space.  A parent teaching a child to tie a shoe is a life altering performance.  Theater is show-n-tell.
