This solo is a ritual. I dedicate this to all of my mothers.
“What is experience? What is life? What is motion? What is reality? To all such questions we must give St.Augustine’s answer to the question. “What is time?” – “I know, but when you ask me I don’t.” /…/ “ i can only answer, “Don’t be silly. You know very well what they are. We can’t go around on defining things indefinitely without going round in circles. To define means to fix, and, when you get down to it, real life isn’t fixed.””
