I love learning about other cultures and seeing other ways of life.
A few years ago I directed a dinner theater play set in Kenya. I got to meet and work with a Maasai dance troupe (they were here to get publicity for a wonderful charity, Matanya's Hope) and I learned a whole new way of eating and dancing... I even learned a little Swahili!
That experience was one of the reasons I was so excited to try a Bollywood version of a Shakespeare play. Another chance to immerse myself in an interesting and beautiful culture, who wouldn't go for it?
I'll let you know all about the festival tomorrow... but why wait? Come and see it for yourself!
