Repetition Repetition Repetition

Granville Island. A place surrounded by a large amount of bird feces, as well as a beautiful waterfront, was the venue location for the Push Festival's, "Clark And I." Unlike "The Show Must Go on," I did not experience any feelings of anxiety or fear as this felt like a more comfortable location.

Frustration, Confusion, and Annoyance were just a few of the many different emotions that I went through initially during the night of the performance. At times I wanted to get up and leave since I did not understand the humor of the play, nor did I grasp its premise.

My feelings changed as I began to understand how the play was developing. I appreciated the use of visual affects: Lighting, Moving and Still Photos, Slide Show, Projection Screen, even the man in the bunny suit. Moreover, I enjoyed the bunny man's interaction with the crowd - this kept me awake throughout the show. I also thought the connection between "Old Photo's" with "New Technology," used throughout the development of the play was interesting.

However, I did not particularly like the way the Bunny Man developed his points since it seemed like he kept going and going...much like the Energizer Bunny. While I'm confident a majority of the audience enjoyed the show and the way it unfolded, it just wasn't my cup of tea.
