God cried woof
God Cried Woof - Sebastian Rex Dance Group.
Choreographed by Sebastian Rex to Beethovens Symphony No.3 in E flat, op.55 ''Eroica''
November 09. - A contemporary piece, intense and stimulating in which I helped to create the part of Angel/Demon.
(For a person who does not particularly warm to Beethoven, I became transformed by the experience and am grateful to have discovered the most wonderful drama of his music.)
Well there was just silence from her
when she moved
soft and pliant -
umbilical - like a child
an intelligence, but i see
somewhere for me
an invisible provocation also - from
a something else,
because i saw -
& saw a little bit more
than i was meant to!
Soft and pliant, like
A generosity of spirit and a
the silent sleep of the wild
arms of a watery mother
not yet ready but already
there enough to see the future.
The beautiful, silent, watery muse
soft, pliant as a child, born swiftly
into the cauldron of the wild
I stirred the cauldron of the Cosmos,
and found the child
living in volcano fire
light and silent -
She stirred space and saw the stars
buried in the wide arms of the black mother
whom 'Nobody' knows.
and whose calm embraces never tire.
(Written whilst in the midst of working on God Cried Woof and inspired by watching one of the dancers who moved with a very lovely soft and quiet attention.
