repeating each other

it's a good thing, actually. taking someone else's words and movements, and bringing them into yourself -- then letting them out again. We do it all the time - quoting Sesame Street, the Simpsons, Spinal Tap, or Sid Vicious - why not the real people we know as well? It's more than mundane, it's what we call culture.

So I've watched a bunch of that going on this week, while spending more time on Aluna's next show, La Comunion - a walk in the shoes of a child soldier in Colombia, going up at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre in January. That one will be special: it's in English AND Spanish. I don't like either of the words 'subtitles' or 'surtitles' - I'm calling what we are proposing 'ubertitles.' see it - you'll see why...
