“What is interesting?” As I sat in the theater the other day, this question crossed my mind. I was watching Healing Wars, a performance that combined dance, theater and multimedia to covey the damage and healing process of our veterans. The play was innovative, poignant and, in my mind, terribly interesting. While reflecting upon the lovely, thought-provoking experience, something occurred to me. I realized that, as much as I enjoyed the show, there are many people I know who would probably feel otherwise. I am the first to admit that the performance was unconventional. Along with the opening, where the audience walked backstage through a series of vignettes and character interactions, there was nudity, abstract dance and an atypical cast, including an albino gentleman and an amputee veteran. Cats this was not. To know me is to know that this type of thing is right up my alley. I’ve given it some thought as of late and I think it boils down to this- I am interested in anomalies. Not the crazy strange, more along the lines of slightly different from the norm. I find beauty in the unexpected, humor in the unpredictable, interest in the new. Surprise me and you’ll have my attention. Do it well and you’ll have my heart. How does this whole diatribe relate to today’s look? Like my taste in theater, the fashion that I find interesting sometimes leans towards the avant-garde. The button down is cut up to my waist and the crotch drops down to my knees. I know that this look isn’t for everyone. But I find it interesting.
