Between us-ing

I don't know...But I think in all those situations of creation, of opening oneself, becoming a kind of door and space, welcoming space for the apparition or surge, coming into the world of something else or someone else: all those who belong to different practices, different languages, share, I'm absolutely sure,
'echoing you' actually, the pre-condition. We are the pre-conditional, pre-conditioned, pre-conditioning beings without whom nothing and no one would happen. And actually what is happening right now is the simplest and most immediate instance of that: I am answering you. And what I am - is an answer.

I certainly have no answer. -I only have your questions as the cradle for hoped-for answers, which may dance in or never appear. It all happens between us, it's a 'between us-ing'. *

My Anteroom Has Eyes, 2021

...the capacity for tragedy of a public. And for hope, and for dream, and for despair: all things that are disappearing from the world at large. So for me it's important that there are places like that house, that magic house
, where I give up part of my - what could I say - what would gratify me     What I do
it’s swallowed, eaten up by the actors. It becomes, really, flesh and blood. It becomes their body, their movements, it's a breath that they inspire, and that sends them acting, being active in a way that is passive, because they're sent
in an innocent way. So all of us, we give up part of our - what should I say - properties, what we own, etc., in order to try and reach a horizon which is very far away, just ideal and dream-like.*
