"I got less interested in the skills of one particular performer 
and more interested in the energies that happened in the 
invisible space between performers." 

Phelim McDermott, Physical Theatres: A Critical Reader, p. 205

Art should not picture the visible, but make the invisible visible, which means that it must translate the world into new pictorial laws or principles. Instead of the phenomenon of a tree, brook, or rose, we are more interested in revealing the growth, flow and blossoming which takes place within them. 

Paul Klee

The everyday is a world of dialects not mother tongues,
utterances so apparanty inconsequential
that they have avoided the attentions of the academy.

Alan Read, Theatre and Everyday life

So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.

Alt går så fort i våre dager.


Men jeg går like seint som jeg alltid har gått. Seinere. Noen ganger sitter jeg helt stille og ser langsomt i veggen.

Odd Børretzen, 'Fortere'

(Everything moves so fast these days. (...) But I move as slow as I always did. Slower. Sometimes i sit completely still and look slowly into the wall.)

Now constantly there is the sound,
quieter than rain,
of the leaves falling.

Under their loosening bright gold,
the sycamore limbs
bleach whiter.

Now the only flowers 
are beeweed and aster, spray
of their white and lavender
over the brown leaves.

The calling of a crow sounds
loud - a landmark - now
that the life of summer falls
silent, and the nights grow.

                              Wendell Berry
