I have walked by the Constans Theatre numerous times, but its wasn't until I attended "The Divine" that I had a chance to really appreciate it. I arrived a bit early so I had the time to walk around the outside of the Theatre and I was taken by the harmony of it all.
The Spatial Experience
Even outside the Theatre itself, the artwork (pictured below) and the atmosphere was all reminiscent of my days of Theatre in highschool. When I walked into the Theatre I was surprised at how good of a mood I was in, considering I initially only went for the sake of this assignment. I was seated in the third row and as soon as I looked up at the black box theatre, memories of my own theatrical experiences on that same style stage came rushing in. As one thought turned into another as I waited for the play to begin, I found myself reliving many of the happy memories of my highschool years. As the show started up I found myself unusually cheerful.
Could this be because of the memories brought by the familiar setting? Are good memories not a vital part of the good life? The answer is YES. That why environment is so important to the "Good Life", its important to feel comfortable and safe where you are.
