sailing soon...










Last preparations before departure .
Need new flip flops
one diving mask
car service

this morning I went to pick the fiat from service
Alekos the mechanic is the most honest and reliable professional.
I love this place that smells metal and oil....
Always liked carefully arranged tools.
And the pictures on the walls were a nostalgic blessing that reminded me of my nona (granny)
with these images in mind Im leaving this town of pain to meet our place on earth that every year forms a home made by sea and rocks and takes away the garbage that our system holds...noise will become wave music,cement will transform to sand and ceilings, to sky full of millions of stars to watch every night....

wish you all to have some rest,fun and love and be loved...
watermelon kisses!!

META....




























My dear friend Evelina had invited me to watch her act in a performance called META.
We went last night with my kido...
Another amazing space I ve never seen....the oldest and biggest tinery of the Balcans.Forgotten somewere in Votanikos...
We were thrilled with the whole experience..
The play was about world destruction....meta/after.
We were asked by speakers to move through various spaces....first there was a party...then we were in the dark watching the girls dancing in the water.....that part was like an hommage in Pina Baush.
Then we were lead to the main huge space to watch a great 'tableaux vivant'
changing all the time...commenting in life, death, sex,religion,revolution....changing from drug queen show to sharp monologues....the whole team was steaming....
among the audience a very cute dog...kept quiet the whole time...
I kept the last monologues words:
Dont be scared darlings ,dont worry,what's falling apart is only the surface....

Evelina YOU ARE GREAT!!!

Petro, if you dont know this place ...you should check it out,very much your style!!!(winter shooting)
Last performance 11/7 (dont miss it!!)

love

Yes we can't...








Watched Forshythe's company 'YES WE CAN'T' last night....
It was so relaxing...like Woody Allen at contemporary dance.

I found similarities with the Square events ...the randomness of modern frenzy society.
The main idea is Samuel Beckett's saying; Try again.Fail again.Fail better.Wich as a principle,aknowledges the fact that maybe the only thing we are able to do is better mistakes....yes maybe we can't...this idea of loosing of failing..is not acceptable by society today...maybe thats why so many people left almost angry from theatre last night..
About the dancers ...Im so happy I was able to watch artists of such high level perform..each one was unique and could keep an audience by himself...imagine all those dancers interact...improvise and having fun for one and a half hour...simply delicious...
And this guy William Forshythe, so alive and so simply honest, about searching for the choreographic objects, that is the alternative ways of understanding the possibilities to organise the actions that aim to get the audience attention..as he says.
The old factory was so beautiful...unfortunately no picts allowed...so I have only
the factory,the atmosphere and some photos of the paper to show you...I hope you get the feeling....or go tonight if you can...or search in utube for Forshythe's work...humor is a big virtue...

thanks Basil....

lol.....
