Rectangles Of Light Spoiling The Show

In Saint Petersburg last summer we went to a performance of Cossack dancing. A woman in the row in front of us filmed the whole show through her phone.

We asked her to put the thing away because the little dancing light of the screen on her phone was distracting. She shouted back that she had bought the video, so she wasn’t doing anything she shouldn’t.

She never saw the live show, she saw it on ‘TV’ as it were – through her phone.

Scanning the audience in the semi-darkness there were little rectangles of light dotted here and there – people filming on their phones.
