November 15, 2008 – German Expressionism.  Dark, Livid and Intellectual.

As if watching a stage play common in the early 1900s – complete with the cold and desolated horizon of Lake Michigan as a backdrop to complement props with the Art Nouveau style lightposts.
And oh, with the stark raven hovering just above as dark as the foreground.

We have a complete show worthy of the drama playwrights of Georg Kaiser,Ernst Toller and Frank Wedekind.

Ah, the dramas, you might say.

You can say that again.
