On Saturday, August 1, I had the privilege of attending a workshop presentation of a work-in-process at CORE Performance Company in Decatur, Georgia. Coming to the Decatur square is always a fun experience, and the weather, although hot, was perfect for strolling a bit and doing some people and pet-watching. But then there was the dance.
If you are looking for some light entertainment that will send you home refreshed but unchanged, Sue Schroeder’s “Life Interrupted” is not for you. This work is based on the experiences of 160,000 Americans during World War II: Americans who were uprooted, displaced, and sent to internment camps because of their heritage. 120,000 of these were Asian, mostly Japanese. We rarely hear about this horrific part of our history.
