are we going backwards?

deep anger, frustration and sadness came to visit me after the show
young women dressed in white walking toward me shifting their hips from side to side
no sense of ground no sense of orientation towards space
their thighs naked their skin exposed
loud music and the reiteration of old stories about sexism and gender issues
what did our mothers fight for?
years of protests went into ashes within a 20 minutes choreography
and then the question: what is education? does education involve evolution?
is education about reflection? can they see their reflection?
is it about learning from the past in order to present new options for the now? is it about seeing? is it about sensing? is it about thinking of a possible future wet with values and a VIEW?
