An experience with “high culture”
Anybody who knows me will surely tell you, that I am not into “high culture”. Actually, I will tell anyone willing to listen just how much musicals suck. How much you ask? Big time! Anyways, I haven’t been to a play for I don’t know how many years, it was probably while I was in school and got forced into going, that I last attended an actual play of some sorts.
Yesterday I went to see a play. And I didn’t get forced into doing it. No, I actually did it voluntarily – I even ordered the tickets myself! So why this change? I don’t know, really. Anyways, Louise and I went to Mungo Park and saw “Forstad“, which is a play about three teenagers struggling with life in a small suburb. One of the actors was Jonatan Spang, whom I have only known as a stand-up comedian, but I was quite impressed with his acting skills.
When you haven’t been to a play for years, how do you choose which one to go to? What I did was the following: read a mention of the play in a blog, read about the play on the theatre’s website, order tickets. It’s that simple.
All said and done, I really enjoyed the experience, especially because the whole atmosphere about the theatre-experience was so relaxed, and the feeling of “high culture” was totally absent. I’m going again sometime soon 🙂
