rites of passage

How on earth ... to move beyond the skin line? ... to reconnect with our dreams & visions?

May there be more Compassion, Wisdom, and Peace for all!

Tu es et juis suis

Tu es la vague de la mer, moi, je suis ton galet
Toi, l'aiguille, et moi, ton fil
Tu es ma flèche, je suis ton arc
Tu es l'acteur; je suis ta voix
Tu es ma mémoire et moi, la nostalgie
Toi, mon encre, je suis ta plume
Tu es le rateau, je suis ta feuille
Tu es le masque et je suis le modèle
Tu es la neige et moi, tes traces de pas
Tu es le brouillard de mon aube
Tu es la solitude de mon vide
Tu es mon talon d'Achille et je suis ta faiblesse
Tu es le cri et moi, le silence
Tu es la rage et je suis le pardon
Toi, ma larme et je suis ton rire
Tu es la fedélité et moi, la trahison
Tu es l'attente, je suis le voyageur
Toi, le labyrinthe et moi, Icare
Tu es ma tragédie et je suis ta farce
Tu es la tyrannie et moi, la révolution
Toi, Phedre et moi, Hippolite
Tu es mon théâtre et je suis ta vie.

Memekwesiw

"According to traditional knowledge, the Memekwesiw offer guidance on natural medicines and how to live life in harmony with Nature. They are said to be about the same height as two-year-old children, but are easily distinguishable from them because they have no noses. Memekwesiw in the La Ronge region are said to live in caves carved out of the rock near the lake's shoreline."(Virtual Saskatchewan)

sex, language & religion

"Theatre of Catastrophe takes as its first principle the idea that art is not digestible. Rather, it is an irritant in consciousness, like the grain of sand in the oyster's gut... "(Theatre of Catastrophe)


"More specifically why this violent use of language? What purpose does it serve? Sometimes it is violent. Sometimes it is tranquil. The two states
coexist. But the violence of the tone is only a reflection of the passion of the
character to discover his or her freedom in a world which is insufficiently
gratifying for modern man... which is in fact, shrunk. This cry of violence is
a cry for more authentic experience than is available, not only from society,
but possibly - horror of horrors - from life itself"
(Challenging Conventions An Interview with Howard Barker by Gilles Menegaldo University of Poitiers)


- See: Theater

:: note :: ... sex, language & religion are the greatest obstacles to theater education ... schools are unable to adequately deal with "issues" ... the small minded political correctness dominates those with a disposition to virtue ...
