The dramaturgy of the performance is mostly based on Morten Søndergaard poetry, from the book “Vinci later”, bellow:
To Walk. To walk backwards, in our own tracks.
Name. Moveable names…
You asked me, if I felt like taking a walk,
and the question branched out across the Landscape.
The Landscape tries to speak with us.
It tries to pronounce our unfamiliar names,
but we are unable to formulate them…
What do you want to know? It says: We are already here.
Let Go! We are refugees, we hang over the railing of the boat of chance. Keep going!
I love each deadening beat of your heart!
It is as if I were you… You must not be afraid…
There is nothing left, except poems and the cluttered daily existence,
the evil dizzying groove of time.
My poor sense of direction
My poor sense of direction. I am Lost- all things considered.
It’s of minor importance. In a moment I shall walk “there”.
Before now, I was “here”. Now, I am in a place between “here” and “there”.
So much needs to be said, before it’s too late. It just keeps on, it grows…
The world fell apart and was put together by an intelligent child.
The other side of the landscape
The other side of the Landscape, You say. Would you like to go there, You say?
Is it a question of squeezing through, of reaching something?
We stop here.
The Landscape is too inevitable to be on the map.
We want to contain it, but it keeps turning the most obvious side to face us.
The key: To walk!
