At the beginning of my internship with DTE I went to Green-Wood Cemetery to work on Angels and Accordions. The cemetery was so nice. The workers did a really good job keeping the cemetery clean. That was my first time in a cemetery in the United States.
Angels and Accordions is a performance DTE has every year that’s celebrating its fifth year. Before the show starts, Martha talked over the microphone with the audience to thank them for showing up. After that we told them we had a train if they felt like they can’t walk, “so feel free to get in the train.” There were two people holding tall umbrellas- we told the audience to follow them and to stop when they stop and walk when they walk.
The cemetery is so big it took us 2 hours to go around it. When we went around the cemetery we saw the actors as angels. They stayed still like statues. It was so beautiful walking with the people who were playing accordion. Some angels climbed on the trees, some were running on the ground- some angels were in the lake, dancing. I had fun there, I hope next year I see it again.
