Køb en havn
Buy a haven
buy a smile
and you have a haven in each human mirror
or no. Don’t even buy it. Just give it away
But if you sold it the first time, the space in your heart, then maybe you have to buy it back
Negociate with pain, fear or whoever squatted it and say:
I want you out now
I wanna cultivate something nice here
I want a haven for my heart where it can rest in peace
a haven for the turbulent waves of social life
And I am in back in Copenhagen, finishing the interesting dance theatre course of ART & SOUL with Richard Lee. With all ages and backgrounds we investigate ourselves, meetings, bodies and expressions.
And today I did a high definition scream on stage, my lovely group liked it, felt it was fascinating. Nice therapy to do horror scenes when I hated them when I was a child, couldn’t stand them on TV or stage. Live through it and it will leave. Tomorrow we perform, welcome if you’re around. Vesterbro kulturhus, time 3.27. Sharp. It’s art.
Then fantastic sauna with lovely strangers, well they are not strangers anymore now. Don’t cry for me Christiania, the truth is I never left you. You’re the ugly duck, I’m sure an architect of H.C. Andersen’s kind will see it one day.
Just like he saw the beauty in each child and told them the stories from beneath and above – like the 2 year old baby I eye play with during the whole bus ride back home.
And finally ending with feeling the beautiful community vibration of old European culture: Albanian party with hundreds of youngsters dancing in a row. In peace, holding each others hands. In Nørrebrohallen. I think I was the only blond in the house. But in heart it is the same. We came here to gather: to dance, sing, scream, laugh and cry. To handle life.
Just like when I joined some beautiful street musicians – Knud and Vicktor – at Strøget last weekend and since their mike was down I started dancing. We got a huge crowd. Without any uttered word. Just humans meeting. Young and old. I’m sure it’s on tourist youtube by now.
We came here to gather: to dance, sing, scream, laugh and cry.
Together we can do anything.
I am thankful for being alive today.
It is exiting to live when one dares.
