Backstage Reveries – Voice Sketches – 2008 –
The backstage is where everyone mingles and there is the rumbling of soft chaos… where you can hear the odd sounds of voices warming up and quick whispers. It’s where the great promise of release and serenity of exchange with the audience is held… where there is both clock time and the taste of eternity… where you can almost hear the knot in the heart.
It’s in the knot, in the backstage heart that these wild paradoxes and strains, speeding emotions, hopes, desires and thoughts cross – this wealth of dreams made of « anything ». Almost everything is allowed in the backstage.
As I nose-dive into the small knot in the heart, its love-tension widens to hold every visitor – to include any single voice and style of breath, every color and myth, every religion.
