Dedicated to Lika Mutal

 

In 2006 I was invited to a festival in Lima by the actresses of the Yuyachkani theatre group. One day they took all the guests to the memorial monument El ojo que llora (The eye that cries) by Lika Mutal, a labyrinth leading to a stone sculpture at the centre. As I entered the labyrinth, I looked down: beside the track there were thousands of stones laid in order, one for each victim of the war that had lasted for twenty years between the Peruvian army and Sendero Luminoso. Some of the stones disclosed the name and date of birth and of disappearance or death of a person. Looking down and remembering all the other wars and massacres, I was seized by anguish and a sense of impotence. Searching for comfort, I looked for a long time at the sculpture washed by a continuous ripple of water representing the tears of the Pachamama (Mother Earth). Then I walked all the way back. The stones were in the opposite direction and I could no longer read the inscriptions. Automatically I raised my eyes and head, and my erect body regained energy. The simple obligation of placing one foot in front of the other changed my attitude. I understood then that what we can and must do is to keep on walking. The action of walking decides and where we look determines the direction and the spirit of where we are going.

KULTURFESTIVAL 1.-16. JUNI 2019

 

 

 

Som en del af Europæisk Kulturregions og Regions Midtjylland store kulturfestival i juni 2019 inviteres kulturinteresserede fra hele landet og udlandet til to internationale ”søster” festivaler, som ligger i forlængelse af hinanden på tværs af Jylland. Begge festivaler fokuserer på at giver stemme til kvindelige kunstnere og skaber rum for kunstnernes bud på vores tid, fortid og fremtid. De to festivaler skabes i projektet Between Two Sisters i et samarbejde mellem Odin Teatret, Holstebro og Teater Viva, Aarhus.
