The Pleasure of Absence





It is the pleasure of imagining a performance - or rather, of imagining a universe. A narrative, an aesthetics, an experience, a unity.
It is the pleasure of imagining a liveness, a directness, a presence.
The pleasure of experiencing the echo, the recording, the extract, the fragment of a copy of a copy. The pleasure Plato was so afraid of.
It is the joy of watching something on a small pixellated video image and imagining it live and juicily 3D.
It is the ecstatic moderato of my computer screen, of yours, which acts out the world that supposedly tastes better off-screen (heck, it tastes). Yet it is not off-screen, not in the performance space, but here, at this very desk, dressed in dark-green boxers, brown socks and a t-shirt, among the hills of papers and books and accompanied by the delicate sound of the washing machine and an occasional sms, that I experience it. The pleasure of absence. The ecstatic moderato.

I don't know about you but I am looking at a blank page. LOL But I get that this is where imagination starts.

It's impressive how you explain a thought in a more complex one. It made me realize how imagining a performance should be, how much passion you should put onto; etc. Thanks for the post.

Probably the worst "dance" I have ever seen. Echoes of a dead and buried modernity that romanced its self to(what should be) nothingness many many years ago.

There's a new modernity which you aren't recognizing -- The dance itself has little to do with that - - The digital window pane has, in my opinion, romanced itself into existence and evolution. The dancers give us critical mass, a symbol for the way we now interact.

As they said,Action speaks louder than words.Emotions together with act explains a lot of things.This could be more feel by the audience.

Well said performance!The expression of each actor and actress brings more explanation of what the scene is really all about.The lesson or message they want the audience to get is given accordingly.

The emotion within actions simplify yet shares more of the meaning.It's not enough to say the words but letting the audience feel it, gives more passion.

When you perform in a live stage, it is all about your emotions and skills. Every move or swing that you do, there is a corresponding word upon it. For me, being a stage performer is a good art.
