    The knee pads were hilarious.
    Never crossed my mind. I noticed that whenever one of you is asked about his favourite moment the answer does pin point to a scene or a phrase but instead everyone is involved in there and that is wonderful.

    Keep friendships alive and be glad for company.

    Take care.

    Hi Allison.
    I loved the video. You are very interesting about the art.
    I found an interesting story about the perception of art.

    “Violinist Joshua Bell played incognito in a Washington subway.
    A Most Interesting Story

    A man sat at a metro station in Washington DC and started to play the violin; it was a cold January morning. He played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, since it was rush hour, it was calculated that thousands of people went through the station, most of them on their way to work.

    Three minutes went by and a middle aged man noticed there was musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds and then hurried up to meet his schedule. A minute later, the violinist received his first dollar tip: a woman threw the money in the till and without stopping continued to walk. A few minutes later, someone leaned against the wall to listen to him, but the man looked at his watch and started to walk again. Clearly he was late for work.

    The one who paid the most attention was a 3 year old boy. His mother tagged him along, hurried but the kid stopped to look at the violinist. Finally the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. All the parents, without exception, forced them to move on.

    In the 45 minutes the musician played, only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money but continued to walk their normal pace. He collected $32. When he finished playing and silence took over, no one noticed it. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.

    No one knew this but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the best musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written with a violin worth 3.5 million dollars.

    Two days before his playing in the subway, Joshua Bell sold out at a theater in Boston and the seats average $100.

    This is a real story. Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of an social experiment about perception, taste and priorities of people. The outlines were: in a commonplace environment at an inappropriate hour: Do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize the talent in an unexpected context?

    One of the possible conclusions from this experience could be: If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing the best music ever written, how many other things are we missing? ”

    The popularization of art is something important. This history demonstrates. We must reach people by means of the entertainment they consume more to help them to discover new entertainment. Your idea of vidéoblog on the Internet is a good example. Making a film about your group showing the preparation of your show will educate people on the experimental theater. I should like to see what you have lived and how you have lived in the big screen.
    The participation of Josh Groban in the series Ally McBeal is an extraordinary example. People who have talent should be seen as much or more than Paris Hilton.
    We are surrounded by beauty that shines before us and we do not see it.
    Allison, thank you for opening our eyes.
    Bye

    The Washington Post doesn’t know squat about marketing?

    Hmm, I wonder what would have happened if they had a virtuoso guitarist playing those same Bach pieces on an electric guitar and Pignose amp. . . during a cold *evening* rush hour in Washington, D.C.?

    Hi Allison,

    I’ve already saw this video on the Iris Theatre page, but it’s great you posted it in here as well. Since you love the theatre you probably should try to be on stage more often.

    take care,

    Allison, I love your dedication to your craft–placing maxipads on your knees for kneepads is brilliant but also insane.

    You look like you are having a wonderful and creatively fulfilling experience there–keep up the great work :):)
