German theater

September 4, 2009 - Tessa Makepeace
Well, where do I start? It has been like a week since I have written anything. So much has happened and I have been completely busy. I have been going to school every day plus I have a schedule and books. Woo! I have French with the seventh graders, which is pretty silly. I like it though. I know my way around the school much better now. My family always has something going on, which is good because I like being busy.

Last night we went to this theater production in Magdeburg and it was incredibly cool. It was not like people usually picture a play. It was interactive! The play was called Sommernachtsball: das Leben ein Tanz. It was about this group of five friends who kept meeting up over the years and it involved a lot of dancing. The actresses and actors would pull people from the audience onto the dance floor for certain songs. At one point, the play was taking place in the seventies and they gave a bunch of people in the crows Hawaiian necklaces. They grabbed me to dance twice because I was in the front row, which turned out to be fun. My host mom got pulled onto the floor too. Towards the end, the scene was about one of the friends who became a teacher and students were reading poems so she gave me a poem to read. She also gave poems to two other people out of the crowd of about maybe forty? The poem was called Mein Land, and halfway through she realized I was from a different country and sort of didn’t let me finish. The scene was in the time of the DDR in Germany and there wouldn’t have been people from other coutries there probably. It was weird but funny. One of the actors was from Chicago even! Very cool.

Well, tomorrow I am sleeping over with a couple of friends so I need to sleepJ
