PREMIERING 15-19th of SEPTEMBER, PROJECT ARTS CENTRE, 2pm
“As far as I know you never saw the sweetness of this, the gasping rarity and do-we-dare-ity of clasped hands
clasped firmly or a clandestine kiss. Never saw all of this happily packed-ness. Never saw the not-so-youthful
and youth alike in action, revolt, and bright clothing.”
Drawing Crosses on a Dusty Windowpane is a short, sweet, intense meditation on time and loss.
It’s sort of a play, sort of a spoken word poem, but definitely made out of memories and questions. Things like:
Were you happy? Were you lonely? If you were young today, rather than then, would you be more happy and
less lonely? Would you feel safer telling people who and what you are? When someone’s gone, you can’t know
these things. But you can ask yourself, and you do ask yourself…
