A Passo di Mulo (a dance for listening)
These are times of reverie.
Let words and sounds take us to imaginary worlds.
We are on stage together, back to that magical realism, the one you feel in your body.
Listen to the dance, imagine the movement.
You are strongly advised to use headphones.
Close your eyes.
Enjoy something that lasts.
Today I wander with a fixed but flexible gaze, with my knees light, and my feet continuously submerged in the dust, in the mud, in the water, in the stone. Tirelessly I go on, carrying my earth in my stomach, carrying their weight on my back. I cross landscapes of flesh, I vibrate with the cries of the deaf dust and I lose myself in the attempt to continue, to reinvent myself. I let the yellow dust mark my veins, I bear the vertical burden of my head and let the force of someone else’s breath renew me. I move and plunge, plunge and move, always forward, as Doña Esperanza used to say.
