25th April is traditionally an important day in Italy. It's Liberation Day and S. Marco, the latter Saint's Day.
I dedicate it to my Marco Lusini for his ongoing inspiration & message to always stay true to his & one's own artistic values and visions.
“...the painting has also taught me that we can speak to each other across time."
That life—whatever else it is—is short. That fate is cruel but maybe not random. That Nature (meaning Death) always wins but that doesn’t mean we have to bow and grovel to it. That maybe even if we’re not always so glad to be here, it’s our task to immerse ourselves anyway: wade straight through it, right through the cesspool, while keeping eyes and hearts open. And in the midst of our dying, as we rise from the organic and sink back ignominiously into the organic, it is a glory and a privilege to love what Death doesn’t touch. For if disaster and oblivion have followed this painting down through time—so too has love. Insofar as it is immortal (and it is) I have a small, bright, immutable part in that immortality. It exists; and it keeps on existing. And I add my own love to the history of people who have loved beautiful things, and looked out for them, and pulled them from the fire, and sought them when they were lost, and tried to preserve them and save them while passing them along literally from hand to hand, singing out brilliantly from the wreck of time to the next generation of lovers, and the next.” (DonnaTartt, The Goldfinch)

Dir. G. Ower: “I wanted to capture the range of emotions you go through over those hours; the sadness, guilt, intimacy, the anger. That push and pull between each other and the battle between the love that's still there and the inevitability that you both know it's over.”
Movement Dir. F. Cox-Davies: “Dance is the perfect form to express emotions which otherwise can't be communicated coherently. I just wanted it to feel like a dialogue between two people.”
