For Wagner


2007 Creation


It will be about battles. The battles we force ourselves into. Those we wage and lose. About our paranoid constructions. About cows and sniggers. About the White Coats and the Blue Pyjamas. About barricaded balconies, knives planted into neighbours’ doors, about closed places where no light comes in. About Ludwig II of Bavaria, Aimée, Wagner (Richard) and Wagner (Ernst). About landscapes that tell the long discovery of an individual, one of the greatest playwrights of his time, who was despised, tortured by people and became a man-animal and a murderer (mass murder).
