Learning new things from my students pleases me a lot. The other day, a student invited me to a performance by players from Kyoto and Cardiff, Britain. The venue was dark, with some spotlights and electronic music. There was a monster on stilts, a woman who looked like a doll, a mannequin who was actually, a man, and many other exceptional performers walking, running, rolling around in an underground setting.
In the picture, the woman in a black paper dress was near me. Her role was to look at the balloons on the floor for a while, then pull the sweater hung with rubber band at the left-most wall, to the right-most wall, and then let it go. She kept on repeating that movement extremely slowly for one hour. The whole performance lasted one hour and a half. But the woman's part seemed to end after one hour. Then she went to the corner of the hall, took off her paper dress, and began drinking beer with the audience, though her colleagues were still performing!
The title of the performance was "the Heaven in Entropy." It sure was! It was quite an interesting new world to me.
