THE IDLE WISH

A road trip forms our field of vision.

Gravity gets us bowing in devotion.

 

What else would our future be if not our current hope.

Fighting the fight behind us, not in front.

 

The boy appears.

They boy prayed so hard, the body got a headache.

They boy’s exorcisms of the past are not working.

Anyhow, the body decided to celebrate their deaths.

 

For the notable histories.

For the inevitable needs.

 

The boy, the body, they boy.

 

Searching the rush hour of the city.

Slumbering the unknown,

forgetting memories to look for.

 

The boy wished.

 

The boy hopes.

 

They wish. An idle wish.

-------------------------

In “The Idle Wish”, the two performers are navigating through parallel narratives in a dramaturgy of a slumber party. Images are created only to be transformed, allowing more than one relation and sense of time to appear in their intimate actions. In an excessive manner, they are reconfiguring a space of crisis and celebration, as if to question the distances in-between their bodies and the different choreographies and elements they introduce on stage. If our history, this spectacle, cannot be broken, if we cannot live outside of it, then how do we live within it?
