Here I was, thinking this was going to develop into a classic piece of théâtre de l’absurde, or at least a faint echo. Instead, it seems to be dissolving into just another staged reality TV show. Again, these contrasting and conflicting attitudes could just be a ruse to hide the actual purpose of their visit, so I’ll try to keep my composure intact and reserve judgement. Yeah, right. I can do that…!
I am curious, however, about what is “behind” that floral gateway prop. It looks as if there is nothing but bare ground all around. However, I’m thinking that this vague staging is a deliberate setup by Rivera and that we will see The Big Touch Center Reveal within the next two days.
