Cabaret Crusades and Scratching on Things I Could Disavow (Encore)

On Sunday Jury group #1 saw Wael Shawky's film 'Cabaret Crusades: The Path to Cairo' which was a historical movie performed by puppets about the crusades. There were supposed to be 2 parts to the film, but Wael's work was interrupted by the revolution in Egypt, so we were only able to see part 1. I liked the horse puppets best.

The fabulous Diane

Our row

On Sunday Night, Jury group #5 was the second group to see Walid Raad's 'Scratching on Things I Could Disavow.' We were 'shushed' by some audience members and even the actor...but he still hung around to talk to the Jury afterwards while we ate brownies from the theatre bar. Mmm.
