shut the fuck(ing camera) off!

shut the fuck(ing camera) off! 201109we_aquatech_005-thumb-504x454-2683
yesterday i was lucky enough to assist to a general rehearsal of henry pucell’s “dido and eneas” opera in berlin. version of sasha waltz and the akademie fur alte musik berlin. i enjoyed it a lot. but yes, sasha waltz is afraid of music. that’s so obvious. i could even say, she is terrified by the sole fact of the sound concept by it self. she has to bury sound over tons of movements and bodies. no matter what. she uses sound as a excuse for an empty body language. but sound doesn’t fill it at all. on the contrary, sound tries desperately to scape from those bodies and vindicate it’s independence and inner character. then, dance appears so small in comparison to music. anyway, this was not so terrible yesterday as it was in the wagner’s tannhäuser opera she did one month ago, with those TV choreographies everywehere… but why did shasa think she could choreography the “dido’s lament” aria?? why didn’t she accept that this music is simply so beautiful and well constructed, that anything you add will just look ridiculous?? why didn’t she just seat all the dancers, to listen to the singer?

fuck off… this post was not about sasha waltz anyway. i wanted to write about that son of a camera_muzzle_1bitch photographer that was documenting the rehearsal. you mother fucker; you ruined the beauty, stepped on the sacred with your dirty boots and burped happily… you didn’t give a shit that 20 musicians and 20 singers were trying to develop each tiny sound with extreme care and meticulousness. didn’t care those notes were traveling from 300 years ago to our days thru those handcrafted instruments, and that each of those musicians were training for their whole life to accomplish that goal. you had to do your job no matter what. i remember, during a performance of (des)variaciones goldberg, i stopped in the middle of the show, and told one of those photographers noise makers, to leave the theater at the count of five. 

don’t you know, son of a bitch, that you have several devices and inventions to silence and absorb the shutter noise of the camera? here i let you have some links… but i am sure you do know of these devices already… but of course, if you use them and you go unnoticed… who would even repair in your existence?
