Well, I’ll start here – the Paramount is a beautiful theater, with a huge lit sign, gold gilding, and old-style architecture. We also missed Soundgarden by one night! It was a nice place to a a performance.
The show was comprised of two pieces, both choreographed by Israeli artists. So out front of the theater we had to walk through a prostest of Palestinians, carrying signs like “DON’T DANCE ON THE BODIES OF DEAD PALESTINIAN BABIES.”
I mean, come on!
The pieces were in no way politically charged – they were just some artsy dance pieces to music. No agenda, no politics. I know that I might crucified for thinking this up here in the PNW – but “get over it.” Seriously. The protestors were annoyingly aggressive and really had no place there, politicizing something that is not political in any way.
Oh my, Seattle – chill out dudes.
