What happens when the people you love more than anything in the world become history and memory? When can we actually speak about loss; when somebody is dead, or, when you kill him within you? What is the funeral of (my free) time, of youth, of beauty? What is the grave of my freedom?
Is it the Earth for my trust, the flowers for my identity, the coffee (no milk, no sugar) for my faith in you, in us or even in Him?
A short way from your (necro)polis there is only one signpost:
If life must be a journey (and a nice one), did anyone lose the ticket? Which sheep will I come across when I sleep? Why must I still treat my history as a game of domino? Why must I lose what I love the most in order to mature? Do I look wiser, prettier, more confident? I only know this: You won’t return if I turn this page. I can simply remember you, I can only forgive you.
P.S. When will we have a chat?
Aerites Dance Company comes together with Dirk Polak (Mecano) to stage a multimedia dance performance. The central theme: Loss. Five people, each one with his own medium, seek and are sought after. They have lost and they are lost. They are searching. When do we actually experience a loss? Death is not the only ticket for this journey. Because after all, our life is a game and if there is a winner it’s not the one who has lost the least… The performance is not saying goodbye to those who are gone. She’s not mourning for what’s lost. She only dances and sings. For youth, for beauty, for ideology, for faith, for freedom, for love, for trust. And for all that we might lose while we live. She dances. And so she remembers. And she deals with loss. So that «life won’t become a settlement with the void they left behind them…..»
