The venue as a place to gather and share the passion for arts and culture
A group of friends walking down a street chanting and laughing. All of them with clothes and scarfs based on the same colors.
They enter a theater along with more people of all backgrounds and ages (all with the same type of clothing)
Now in their seats all the crowd is chanting preparing to see the show.
We can see a famous excerpt of a play (e.g: to be or not to be…) wonderfully delivered by the actor. When he finish the crowd explodes in joy.
Now a really tragic moment, the guys with the scarf crying in silent, really engaged with the moment.
The show finish and the crowd leaves the venue with more chanting and laughing after having a great time.
The last image is someone showing a scarf with Shakespeare written on it.
