Artist talk after the performance, moderated by Maria Rößler
This song is about
I miss you, but sometimes I don't , because I almost forget (you).
I never thought that to mourn would be like this.
It's about the last time we laughed together
that last last time we laughed together
that perfect last time
It's about laughing one last time together, again and again.
This song is about
all those ghosts : I want to talk to them. We can still play birds.
A SONG TO HEAR YOU ARRIVING is an individual requiem, an extremely personal ritual of grief. The solo performance searches for words to address to a deceased person. What is ultimately created is a tapestry of sound made up of fragments of text, birdcalls, drumbeats, laughter, tears and an epilogue.
