STATEMENT #7

"TRAGEDY, THEN, IS WHERE THE DEAD LIVE, AND WHERE, BECAUSE THEY BOTH [PERFORMER AND MACHINE] BREATHE, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEM. IT CREATES, THEREFORE, A SPACE IN WHICH THE IMPOSSIBLE APPEARS AS POSSIBLE, A MOMENT, PERHAPS, IN WHICH WE GRAPS WHAT MESSIANIC TIME MIGHT FEEL LIKE."

EXTRACT FROM A LETTER BY ROMEO CASTELLUCCI PUBLISHED IN THE THEATRE OF SOCÌETAS RAFFAELLO SANZIO, PAGE 36. 2007, ROUTLEDGE: OXON.

STATEMENT #6

"WHENEVER I ASK PEOPLE ABOUT THEIR FAVOURITE BAUSCH PIECE, THE ANSWER THAT INVARIABLY COMES UP IS THE FIRST PIECE OF HERS ANY GIVEN PERSON HAS SEEN. THE SHOCK OF FIRST ENCOUNTER WITH SOMETHING THAT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO REFOCUS YOUR OWN IDEAS OFTEN HAS LASTING POWER."

ROYD CLIMENHAGA IN PINA BAUSCH. 71, 2009, ROUTLEDGE: OXON.

SCREAM #4

THE EXPERIMENTATION IS FOR US A NECESSARY FORMAT FOR EXPLORATION, REQUIRED TO STAY IN A CONSTANT AND EXAMINING INTERACTION WITH REALITY.
BY EXPERIMENTING WE CAN SHAKE OFF THE NUMEROUS NORMS THAT DICTATE OUR EXISTENCE, ALLOWING US THEN TO PRODUCE REALITY.

STATEMENT #5

"DEFINITIVE CHANGES MADE ON A MICROSCOPIC LEVEL MIGHT, WITH THE TIME, CHANGE A WHOLE SOCIETY OR THE CONCEPT OF THE WORLD."

OLAFUR ELIASSON STATEMENT TO INSTITUT DER RAUMEXPERIMENTE, UNIVERSITÄT DER KÚNSTE BERLIN.

STATEMENT #4

"WHEN YOU WANT TO FIND HOW TO ACT ON STAGE, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LISTEN TO THE MUSIC. THE COMPOSER HAS ALREADY SEEN TO THAT. IF YOU TAKE THE TROUBLE TO REALLY LISTEN WITH YOUR SOUL AND WITH YOUR EARS, YOU WILL FIND EVERY GESTURE THERE."

MARIA CALLAS, BBC INTERVIEW 1967.

SCREAM #3

WATCHING L. BUÑUEL'S FILMS, I ALWAYS THINK HOW BADLY PRODUCED THEY ARE.
AFTER A WHILE, I UNDERSTAND WHY I FIND THIS LUCK OF PRECISION AND OF TIDINESS RIGHTFUL. IT IS THERE WHERE THE BEAUTY OF CHANCE LIES IN, WHERE THE SPACE FOR ARTISTIC CREATIVITY (FOR EXPRESSION) IS UNTAMED AND NOT PUSHED BACK BY RULES AND RESTRICTIONS OF MERE -HOLLYWOOD- AESTHETICS. CHANCE (AS FORTUNE OR MISFORTUNE) PLAYES A LEADING ROLE IN THESE MOVIES. HOW COULD ONE POSSIBLY BE PROPER AT A SAME TIME AS UNLEASH ONES OWN DREAMS, MEMORIES, FEARS AND DESIRES.

195 MARE STREET / ART EVICT #4




Fleur: What is our improvised “structure”?

What are the elements we aim to play with?

What are they now and how can we improve on them?

For example; the St Pancras experience: a specific space, people involved, everybody with their own tools, listening to each other, creates an open but specific ensemble.

BRUSHING TEETH WITH HAIRDRYER

-WERE WILL THIS TAKE YOU?

DO YOU HAVE THE OBJECTS IN YOUR HAND OR IN YOUR MIND?

IS THE HAIRDRYER ON?

FEEL THE HEAT ON YOUR TEETH, CLEANING, OBSESSING, THEY ARE GETTING WHITER, I HAVE NOTICED…

YOU SEEM CONFUSED.. AND DON’T HAVE ANY REAL CONTROL OVER YOUR ACTIONS…

BUT YOUR TEETH ARE CLEAN….. AND WHITE… I’VE NOTICED.

WHAT ARE YOU CONVINCED OF?

EXISTENCE.

WHY?

IT IS THE ONE THING THAT IS CONCRETE

ARE YOU DELLUDED?

NO. WHY DO YOU ASK?

A presence that is gone / the mark on the wall / the scar on the face / the trace of a shadow / no blood in the head / the memory comes before the event / the event never arrives / an aborted dream / a water melon / a trace of live and a rest of reality / if reality is what it should be as it is trueful and emotionally palpable / in contrast to what is false, intricate, material but inherent / on standby / a piece of aluminium / a precise cut / a dead end and its narrowness / lights off / unbearable noisy silence / a stone flies onto my chest / no impact / heaviness since before / magnetism without charisma / innerness / excavation / a hole / a leak / emptiness / a terrifying image / a constant return without a step-back / lights off / lights on / a move into b / back to a / anxiety of nowhereness / uusu / wind / cold abysm / rapidness / asphyxiating heavy levitation / rapidness / breath, breath, don’t feel your pulse / disorientation / space without connection / a stop / another stop / no train / no trip.
