Good Life Performance Sedarah knowles

When I first entered the auditorium I felt as if I was underdressed. It was fancy and exceeded my expectations. My seat location improved my experience tremendously; I was so close and intimate with the cast members. When the lights dimmed and the audience quieted it was a little dramatic, but I also was excited to see what was about to happen. Although the auditorium was a bit big, I was in the front so that enhanced my experience. The role of location in the Good Life is that the closer you are, the better the experience.
My intentions was to go to the show with friends, but then I decided to socialize and watch the show with unfamiliar faces. To prepare for the show, I took a nap so that I would not fall asleep during the show and once I got to the show I proceeded to read the program. I do not think attending with friends would have changed or impacted y experience because overall the show was great. The role of shared experiences in the Good Life is that sometimes sharing an experience in one's life make the experience more worthwhile.
The performance in my opinion portrayed and shined light on many issues, but the one that stood out the most to me was sacrifice and the exploitation of women and children. Before the show, I did not have much knowledge about the exploitation of women and children; All I knew about it was the Industrial Revolution. Sacrifice was an issue that hit a little more close to home because it is something I face in my everyday life. The performance made me value sacrifice more and showed how dangerous and impactful exploiting someone can be.
The Divine: A Play for Sarah Bernhardt provided us an opportunity for katharsis by displaying how music, dance, poetry, and song can help us through the toughest situations. In the performance, Sarah Bernhardt stated "What would life be without art? Eating, drinking, sleeping, praying, and dying... Why go on living?". This statement is in correlation to katharsis because they believe that the arts is significant in life; that it can be therapeutic to our everyday actions.
