The most powerful moment in the museum was when we entered the living room of the apartment. Seeing the wallpaper and all of the damage that had occurred over the years really took me to a different place and made me think hard about exactly what went on there. I loved the museum and I hope to go back someday soon.
The 7 Fingers Circus did a fantastic job in their show Traces. It was every bit of what I expected and more. Seeing the performers do their acts and reading their biographies in the play bill really made me realize how much work it takes to be those people. Using their skills and talents, the actors followed a storyline which is not typical of circus type performances. It really was performance art at its finest.
Hair was like nothing I have ever seen. After missing the only song I know from the production, I really had no idea what to expect when I took my seat. The ideas about war, violence, drugs, sex and many other subjects are still viewed by people today in the same way they were back then. It is ironic that the show is ending even though the themes and morals involved in the storyline are without a doubt present in today’s world. Perhaps this is why the show started up again in 2009.
