... Chorus Line & Janhoy [Israel]
Without turning those pages into LUL space, I cannot not to think about Addis: if by now there is no Ethiopian middle class, my theatre will be just a forengi toy... Yes, there are public, as much as some Ethiopia cultural elite, but not the audience that could give birth to NEW theatre. New = with new aesthetics.* as I tried with "2008" pages: main one, "htm" -- notes, HTM and HTML -- for links, and etc. [web-knots]
... not only "Ethiopian professionals" but simply "middle class" and "new rich" [Moscow Art Theatre couldn't be born without the New Russian at the turn of the twentieth century].
How many? Many thousands.
Many other theatres...
A lot of them.
No Theatre without Society!
Even "high society"...
"Critical Mass" -- is it there?
Is there a "society" or "mass" [like in USA]?
My vtheatre got another meaning for "V" -- not virtual, bur variety. Here we go, Meyerhold! Burlesque? Circus. Again? What is different now?
Chorus Line [ images ]Connection between Chorus Line and Diaspora.ET ... Themes: XX century was the era of wars and exile, XXI -- "global" as "American" arrived everywhere [pop-culture/technology]. No need for migration when the world is everywhere? "Local" disappears. The different.
... Many places and faces. Against the SAME. "Ethiopia Ideas" -- filmplus.org/album [Ethiopian Diaries]
The end of running. As in in the past: study somewhere and return "home"...
What is home?
... Earth as home in the third millennium (of cosmos).
