Between centuriespublished: 2009-04-07
We went to an unusual performance yesterday. A well known 17th C writer from Holland had written only one music-piece for the stage. It was more of a cerebral experience than an emotional one. Yet at the same time, the stage composition, colouring, lyrics, images and songs lured me to some strange place: the void of an abstract passing of centuries, a fiction called time. I drifted in and out of the 17th Century. Perhaps this is the true goal of the arts: to prove that time is merely a human construct.
