I attended the performance with my friend, Ashley Beers, who is also taking Good Life and we have known each other since middle school. This picture was taken after we settled down in our sets and I did get her permission to use the pictures of her for this project. Going with a friend that I was familiar with and comfortable around made going to a new place settled my nerves and made the experience more enjoyable. To get ready for the play we read about the Divine and made sure we were able to actually find the Constans Theatre. Attending with a friend made my experience ten times better than going alone because I had someone to discuss the play with whenever I was confused or enjoyed a section of the play. Shared experiences have a heavy role in the good life because humans were not meant to be alone. Having the company of someone that is enjoyable makes situations and experiences more memorable and lighthearted. Relationships are important to build and are necessary towards the good life and sharing experiences just strengthens peoples' bonds and relationships with one another.
I captured this picture during intermission and found the decoration and design of the theatre intriguing. This play was set in the early 1900's in Quebec City and the central issue of this play is facing rebellion and the power of others to do what is right, stand up for justice. Before attending the play I did not know much about the subject matter, I have read stories and watched documentaries before of specifically men that are in higher authority using their power to manipulate children to take advantage of them. The play really opened my eyes to how difficult it can be for especially the victim to stand up for what happened to them and fight for justice. Personally I do not have a relationship or a similar situation that occurred in the play, but I always thought that if something happened to me or someone around me I would be quick to stand up for what is right. In this play, the performance showed me that standing up, rebelling, is not easy and comes with hardship that many people do not want to put on themselves.
