THE DREAM MERCHANTS

The future is almost past, and we are prisoners of the present, which is already a memory.
The moment they appear, cyphers, screens, apps, documents and Father Christmas all become a memory.
It seems that TIME has only one thought on her mind.
To escape the past and the present, appearing and vanishing like a silver arrow in its own night.
Goethe's Faust begs it to stay a bit longer, but the price is extortionate.
Romina's tears, Carmen, Ksenia's dance, The Musical Offering, Sleeping Beauty, Papageno, Valse triste, Orpheus and Vivaldi's Four Seasons are not part of Faust's nightmare, though.
Theirs is the language of music.
And music can be born again each time, thanks to the minds - and bodies - of dream merchants intent on bringing the books of sounds back to life.
It is a mystery which sings and dances in and beyond time, since the beginning and forever always....

Peer Gynt

Edvard Grieg (1843—1907):

Peer Gynt, Op. 23


 ‘I have also written something for the scene in the hall of the Mountain King – something that I literally can’t stand listening to because it absolutely reeks of cow pats, ultra-Norwegianness and trollish self-sufficiency! But I also have a hunch that the irony will be discernible, especially afterwards, when Peer Gynt, against his will, is obliged to say, “Both the dancing and playing – may the cat claw my tongue – were pure delight”.’

Letter to Frants Beyer, 27 August 1874
