Panama Art: 15000 Watts in Casco Viejo

Last night I went to the opening of the show “15000 Watts” at La Casona de Brujas in Plaza Herrera.

The most important part of it all was not so much how electricity has changed our lifestyle to make it more comfortable and allows us to think at a higher level (or not think..) but a question o whether we are able to leave this comfort zone and take action, join efforts and help solve this crisis.

Panama Art: 15000 Watts in Casco Viejo

Panama, Casco Antiguo Casco Viejo, Plaza Herrera Last night I went to the opening of the show “15000 Watts” at La Casona de Brujas in Plaza Herrera.  The show is a meditation on the current energy crisis, in Panama, in the world, and how it touches all of us at different levels.
