A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature
in the beginning
wind shadow struggle stone
I first visited the City of Culture, Santiago de Compostela, Spain, in March of 2011. Despite the grey and damp of that particular day, I was awestruck by the magnificence of Peter Eisenman’s architecture. As I walked between the buildings I said to myself I want to perform here one day.
On July 9th, 2015 — along with an actor and a guitarist — I performed Shipwrecks of Light, homage to the Galician poet Manuel Antonio. I was also given permission to film outside, on the days following the performance.
In the beginning is a prelude to my movement conversation with these spaces. Two longer films will be released in 2016.
