Oct 18th 2016 one year ago a begun LA Folklorama in 2015 , a way to commemorate the event i was Invited to a Chinese Opera at the Dolby Theater by  professor Rosalyn Kahn   the event was almost private and the costumes were impeccable.
100_8013The play took time to build up the the best part  I had got sucked in and i felt the wows and worry of the death of a child as a father I could have related to the idea of the worst tyrant a evil sadistic baster, the teleprompter set up was good to follow up on the story for us who did not understand Chinese, in my opinion as I have no understanding of it roots and culture .100_7995

 I found it interesting how the expression was followed by sounds and aided comical gesture something like a cartoonist puppet-tearing scenes  “Ho I have a thought”  (Doing ) let’s walk to the next town and kill the pigs who did this !!(off we go ? traalala!!  parapoom  – pttish Zappp???) sounds were added  to the story with melody that capture the imagination . At one point the story choked me and so did the audience I begun to cry to the wailing of the Actor Gongsun Chujiu and the sound made it real it came out of now were and intrigued me as I sobbed in my chair with Mia Simion in support she patted me on my back to calm down I was remembering my pain of the lost years on my daughters now 25 and 24 never to have known what is to have a Father,  self pity was shameful bothering me and I bonded with the story it was good therapy for me.
