Listening to Orlången* | Performance | Place: Near the Pizza oven
You know some things.
You know where you want to be.
You listen there.
You go there as often as you can to listen and to dance.
You listen to the soundscape and dance to its song.
You whisper to the wind.
You meet the place through dancing.
You touch the place.
You are also a place.
You make something invisible, momentarily visible.
You look, see, hear, listen, stand, feel.
You flicker between just being and following your interest.
You flicker between doing and receiving.
You are making a collection.
You are collecting sound memories,
these you call objects.
You give them names and titles
to help you return to the
movement and sometimes to help make the
You are re-calling.
You are collecting, re-collecting
you dance your collection for an audience.
