I think we're learning, all along the spectrum of differences, that breaking tradition or expectation is a very powerful way of seeing things completely differently. One of my first performing gigs after college was with an experimental theater company doing new works for pre-schoolers, an audience that had been previously written off because developmental "experts" said they could not slot or comprehend theatrical reality. In fact what they did was bring a different frame of reality, and we performers had to continually adjust and adapt. It was like doing improv in someone's lap. It was completely exhilarating, and a thrill to discover the meanings they were creating. I would never have gone there on my own; it was just a job. But I had an experience very much like the one you're describing, John. In some ways it's the coolest, most connected audience of all.
