Come Away With Me, 1:33 PM, Sunday, June 21, 2009
Susan Lankester, Director.
To Be Good. The second we're conceived, this is what we are expected to be. Physically, psychologically, mentally and emotionally. We become humans 'doing' instead of humans just 'being'. In the end it revolves around Choice, Strength and Freedom. Simply put, but for some, it takes a lifetime to achieve. I believe that we are all born different to make the world a vibrant space. I believe it takes all of us to make anything happen. We're all Important. We're all Special. We're all Good.

In The Good Body, Eve Ensler turns her unique eye to the entirety of the female form.
Whether undergoing Botox or living under burkhas, women of all cultures and backgrounds feel compelled to change the way they look in order to fit in with their particular culture, in order to be accepted, in order to be good. In The Good Body, Ensler explores their experiences with monologues representing women from Bombay to Beverly Hills. Delivering narratives collected in locker rooms, cell blocks, boardrooms, and bedrooms, Ensler frames their stories with her own personal journey from a self-loathing teenager to a (sometimes) self-accepting adult. Interspersed throughout are riotous excerpts from Ensler's lifelong dialogue with her belly—a sassy and conniving antagonist in its own right.
Through her honest, insightful, and sometimes naughty portrayal of genuine experiences and real-life obsessions, Ensler strips the complicated issue of body politics down to its intimate essence, once again destroying pre-conceived notions about what women really think. This is new theatre at its finest: The Good Body will move, inspire, entertain—and just might make you blush a bit in the process.
Eve Ensler’s The Good Body is a personal story. She shares stories gathered from many people, but ultimately she tells her own story. That story is sometimes vain, sometimes confused, seldom clear and simple. She lashes out at corporations, at the government, at stereotypical “men.” And, much like Othello, she blames the people she loves the most for the failings she hates in herself.
She freely admits that body-image issues affect men as well as women. “As I've travelled across the world I've been really struck (by) the degree to which men are obsessed with their bodies and self-hating, too. It's really moved me very deeply and opened my mind to ways of considering and thinking about men."
"Ensler's new show will resonate for those who aren't perfectly satisfied with how they look in a bathing suit…… which pretty much means MOST of us!"
The show was pretty good and funny for a local production and cast! The show revolves around real girls/woman and their problems against their body. Every girl/woman hates at least one part of their body. Sad is it? Woman would go to specialist or have a cupboard of medications and supplements for that particular body imperfection that they hate looking at everyday in the mirror just to make it better or perfect it.
This show is really good for people who thinks that they have imperfect body. Its a good show to educate young girls,
To Stop Fixing YOUR Body When It Was NEVER BrokenSome of us might be voluptuous or jedi means fat in India or have irregular breast size or even have the Latina spread that indicates you have a big butt, so what? You always pick up a magazine with hot, sexy, beautiful and thin stick models and admire them for their body and hate yours. What for? You are the one who bought the magazine. Your the one who is reading them and admiring them. Who to blame but yourself. You can take control of your life and the way you think of yourself.
Being good is so abstract. Being good isn't like sitting exams to become a lawyer, a surgen, a pilot or anything. The show plays so much of the truth that at some point I got lost myself trying to understand what was the message they were trying to potray. The show is funny and witty as well when they talk about sex and for my case I went mostly blur case when they talk about sex. And it was awkward to be in the same room with my parents and Vina's mom and the aunties while watching them talking about sex. Lol.
They even describe our body as a country and continet like if you have a big flabby stomach and a big butt or a big boobs. LOL! They would say feed your country and eat eat eat.
When the show ended all of us where hungry and we went for supper. So we head back out to Kepong Baru to try this hawker place where they fry Hok Kien Mee! It was like 11pm and we are feeding our country with so high carbs! But we enjoyed it a lot. Its been like ages since I hang out with the Sweet Sixteens and Vina.
That's all for my Saturday night! Had fun. Had a great laugh. Had a great supper. Btw, I got a call from Julia my store manager just now at 1 something saying I was suppose to be on the opening shift! WHAT THE FARK was the 1st thing that pop in to my mind. I thought Reena told me that I wasn't on this weekend schedule! Gosh.. The horror k. I wanted to work and try out our new hat that we had to wear for 2 months for our Summer Phase 2. Its a straw hat! :)
Too often we underestimate the power of
a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear,
an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring,
all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Not forgetting hugging as well or just a simple Hi and Bye.
