Can we go back to Spain? We didn’t go here yet.

As a person of color, 90% of the time when I go to see theater in New York City, it is not for me. But guess what I do: as a person of theater — and the main aspect of theater is sitting in a room with people and having empathy for people who do not look or sound like me, who come from different backgrounds — I expand my horizons, which is the point of theater.

You don’t trick people into pretending like “oh, this is for you” when it’s not. You tell them to expand their horizons, and explain why this is important, why you need to, as an older, white person in a metropolitan area, see something that is not about you and actually identify with the universal themes. Because that’s what people of color have to do all the time, 24/7 when they look at tv, when they go to theater, when they go see a movie. Otherwise you would go crazy and just be pissed off and never seen anything if you’re a black person. You have to become a better listener and a better audience member.

I’m a broken record, but listen to this week’s Maxamoo. Worth it for this speech.

Yang Liping in a modern rendition of the traditional Dai dance.

Though most people associate a peacock dance of any kind with the female dancer Yang Liping, the indigenous of the Dai ethnic peacock dance was originally a courtship dance by the more beautiful male peacock, which has a fan, not the more ordinary-looking female peahen, which is more drab and does not have the same spectacular plumage.
