GOArts is short for Georgia Open Arts Month which takes place each October.
It's a collective campaign to raise awareness about arts in our area.

Last October, I took up a challenge to see 31 shows in 31 days and blog about it... in the end, I saw 41.
Sure, it was a bit tiring but it was also an amazing opportunity.

The column on the left is a linked schedule of everything I saw.
For a more logical read of this blog o'adventures, scroll down to the first entry and start reading there.

I'm not a reviewer, nor am I an art critic.
I aim to raise public awareness about the great tapestry of arts & culture in our area and inspire you to get out there and enjoy it.

All The Way From Tallahassee, Florida (Event #23)

I believe it was the Maclay School that traveled all the way from Florida to see Théâtre du Réve (TdR) perform Vive La Fontaine! this past Tuesday at the Horizon Theatre.  There were quite a few school groups at that matinee performance.  The children from Towns Elementary School were also there... calling out the names, in French, printed on each placard announcing the next act.  Impressive.   

Jean de La Fontaine's fables, like The Tortoise and the Hare, transcend language and culture with their universality. Trusting that we share a common understanding of these fables, the very creative, musically-inclined, bilingual actors of TdR are limited only by their imaginations as to how they present each fable in this hyper-visual Suzi Award-winning show.  The performance was as captivating to the sharp, smart, French-speaking students as it was to this theater-loving adult.
Théâtre du Réve will perform again in the new year at Emory University, January 14 through the 24 with their production of L'Acteur Sacrifiant by the French-Swiss playwright, Valère Novarina.  (Pictured above, Chris Kayser, Carolyn Cook and Park Krausen from TdR website)

Oh yeah... the food... quoi encore? -- an international meal in the cafeteria of Your DeKalb Farmers MarketDélicieux!
