2011: The year of the Fool
Every new year I consult the Tarot, that great arbiter of Chance, for a little arcane clairvoyance. As I was in India over the holidays and not near my cards I couldn’t check right away but when I began rehearsals for Artaud last week I pulled a card at random. Quel chance! It was Le Mat (The Fool)!
According to the Tarot of Marseille the Fool signals creation, innovation, a new departure, abandoning everything. The Fool places himself on the fringe of ordinary existence.
So, under the aegis of the Fool we wish you a year filled with inspiration and innovation.
May all your creative comings and goings in 2011 bear the such foolish blessings.

Mise en lecture/Staged reading
Dans la nuit, pendant l’Heure bleue, un homme est assis auprés de sa fenetre, regardant la nuit à travers. C’est une espace de calme, de rêve et de songe. L’homme s’ouvre aux rhythmes et forces nocturnes.
L’Empire de la nuit (The Empire of Night) is a poetic and musical hommage to the night. The audience is invited to enter into a series of aural and visual ‘poem spaces’ for an experience at once intimate, mysterious and dreamlike.
…inspired by the writing of Fernando Pessoa and the installations of Belgian artist Jan Fabrelink name
