Memories from the symposium

We asked the artists participating in the symposium to share their thoughts/responses after the weekend we spent together. Here’s Rosa Molina’s memories:

Horses eating grass.

Horses galloping.

Horses neighing.

War.

A small one.

Company.

Moon.

Silence.

Senses.

Dishes to be cleaned.

Night bath.

Chickens.

The truth told by the tree.

Lying under 700 years of history.

Wood.

People.

Nature.

OUTSIDE.

These are my memories regarding “The Variations of Beckett symposium”. A brilliant experience around the piece “Ohio Impromptu” and the roles of reader and listener in the frame of the natural spaces of Nesodden.

Three days of intense research and exploration about ourselves, nature and Beckett. The well proposed and directed exercises by Schouskollektivet and the huge game of artists from different fields and nationalities helped to create rich interesting performances and to promote the debate between us and the audience.
