This photo was taken by Edwin Mouhawasse, a student at the University of Florida. This photo was taken before I watched "The Divine: A Play for Sarah Bernhardt" on January 26. I had read about the play beforehand in order to gain a better sense of the play as I actually watched it.
The Spatial Experience
This photo was taken by Seung Park, a student at the University of Florida. The Constans Theatre was a very interesting and fascinating place as there were so many engrossing artifacts. Upon entering the theatre, I felt a rush of nostalgia. When I was in middle school, I used to take a drama class in which I would regularly attend plays. So, entering the Constans Theatre gave me a nice feeling of reminiscence. My seat was on the right side of the theatre in the back, which I feel gave me a pretty good view as I was able to see the entire stage and setting without having to squint or constantly look up. In addition, the size of the theatre was rather large, allowing a comfortable experience and letting a vast amount of students to enjoy the play. As soon as the lights dimmed and the play started, I was immediately focused on the stage and the performers. Their realistic portrayal of their characters was rather phenomenal and created a lifelike performance. In my opinion, place plays a major role in the Good Life as one's natural surroundings help shape an individual's actions, leading to a proper path to the Good Life.
The Social Experience
The picture on the left is a selfie (taken by me) of my friends and I before watching "The Divine: A Play for Sarah Bernhardt" and the picture on the right is a picture of my friends and I after the play. The photo on the right was taken by Bethany Greene, a student at the University of Florida. The student in the left photo are, from left to right, Seung Park, Hamza Elmohd, Edwin Mouhawasse, and Kunal Kaushal (me). All of us are students here at the University of Florida. To get ready for the play, I read about the play and read the program to gain a brief sense about what the play would be about. By attending the play with my friends, we were able to take our different perspectives regarding the play and discussed our thoughts and opinions after the play ended. This discussion proves the crucial role that shared experiences play in the Good Life, as thought provoking experiences with those close to you allow you to become a more informed citizen overall.
