This bitter earth

This bitter earth

What fruit it bears

What good is love

That no one shares

And if my life is like the dust

That hides the glow of a rose

What good am I

Heaven only knows

This bitter Earth

Can it be so cold

Today you’re young

Too soon your old

But while a voice

Within me cries

I’m sure someone

May answer my call

And this bitter earth

May not be so bitter after all

[this bitter earth | Otis, Clyde (Songwriter) | IZA Music Corporation (Publisher)]

“intimacies” soon @ Pieces to fit – Brighton (UK)

intimacies, a video-art/music/choreographic collaboration with vocal artist Yvon Bonenfant, was selected by curator Marina Tsartsara to be exhibited this February at Brighton (UK) within the Pieces to fit platform.

intimacies is unique in the world of video-dance in that it emerges from a place of encounter between extended voice, choreographic process and video art.

With dancers Robin Dingemans (nominated Outstanding Male Performance (Modern) 2009 by UK National Dance Awards) and Delphine Gaborit, and vocalist/movement artist Caroline Gill.

Poem “Les pas” by Paul Valery

Les pas de Paul Valery

Tes pas, enfants de mon silence,

Saintement, lentement placés,

Vers le lit de ma vigilance

Procèdent muets et glacés.

Personne pure, ombre divine,

Qu’ils sont doux, tes pas retenus !

Dieux !… tous les dons que je devine

Viennent à moi sur ces pieds nus !

Si, de tes lèvres avancées,

Tu prépares pour l’apaiser,

A l’habitant de mes pensées

La nourriture d’un baiser,

Ne hâte pas cet acte tendre,

Douceur d’être et de n’être pas,

Car j’ai vécu de vous attendre,

Et mon coeur n’était que vos pas.

(versión española)

Tus pasos,

por el silencio creados,

avanzan santa, lentamente,

hacia el lecho de mi impaciente vigilar,

fríos, callados.

Queridos,

adorados pasos mudos,

que sin oír mis ansias adivinan,

¡Qué regalos celestes se encaminan

hacia mi lecho

en unos pies desnudos.

Si, para mi sueño obseso,

tu boca haces avanzar

yo preparo el paladar

al alimento de un beso.

No lo apresures,

ten calma,

dulzura de ser no siendo,

que de esperar voy viviendo

y son tus pasos

mi alma.

(Versión de Charles Dampierre)

(English version below)

Your steps, children of my silence,

Holily, slowly placed,

Towards the bed of my vigilance

Proceed dumb and frozen.

Nobody pure, divine shade,

That they are soft, your steps selected!

Gods!… all the gifts which I guess

Come to me on these naked feet!

If, of your advanced lips,

You prepare to alleviate it,

An inhabitant of my thoughts

The food of a kiss,

Does not hasten this tender act,

To be soft and not to be not?

Because I lived to await you,

And my heart was only your steps.
