LÀ, CALLAS


May the goddess come down right now / And may we be transformed, transfigured, by the mere fact of having her here before us /  Through her singing, through her dancing, may the goddess tansport us far from our smallness, our ordinariness, our finitudes / And we shall kiss her feet / And we shall lick her legs / And we shall eat her heart / And we shall take her face / For we are godphagus, starphagus / And we have waited for so very long / So, by grace, may the goddess dance, may she  finally appear / Now

Based on a minimal scenic disposition, Yalda Younes (resucitated goddess) and Gaspard Delanoë (TV presenter), accompanied by Marta Izquierdo Muñoz (non-idenified animalo-minero-vegetal being), illustrate with both skill and derision, the ambiguous relationships between audience, media, and stars. A subtle reminder, almost as subtext, of the old word of Ecclesiastes: “All things are wearisome; man cannot express it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear content with hearing”.
