Michael Jackson 1958 - 2009

Warhol's 1974 "Michael Jackson," created as a cover for Time magazine.

Michael Jackson life will still have meaning beyond his passing! This was it!

"Pop star Michael Jackson was pronounced dead today after paramedics found him in a coma at his Bel-Air mansion, city and law enforcement sources told The Times."

"LAPD opens an investigation into pop star Michael Jackson's death."

"Mr. Jackson’s 1982 album “Thriller!” is the best-selling album of all time, claiming global sales of more than 100 million copies. But Mr. Jackson was a star before and after “Thriller!,” from his days as the piping lead singer of the Jackson 5 to his increasingly bitter final albums. He was forever a paradox: a precocious child star, a childlike grown-up, a superhumanly skilled performer who always appeared vulnerable, a figure who pursued worldwide fame only to find himself besieged and embittered by media attention. In the 1980’s, he was the embodiment of American pop success, with his ubiquitous hits and video clips, his one white glove and his moonwalk, dancing across stages and heard on radio worldwide. But that success could not last forever, and Mr. Jackson struggled in its aftermath."

"O vazio. Aceitar o vazio da vida pareceu a Connie ser o único objectivo da sua existência. Todas as pequenas coisas importantes e urgentes que, somadas, constituem a totalidade do vazio."

the end of TV... as we know it!

Television stations across the United States are now expected to be broadcasting solely in digital form, bringing an end (with caveats) to the analog signals that have delivered TV shows to viewers for the better part of a century.

Stations had until midnight local time to flip the switch and power down analog transmitters. Some of the nation’s 1,800 local affiliates switched to digital earlier in the day, but many waited until the final hour, according to the Federal Communications Commission. (...)

Collaborative Documentary Classes

Screening of Dziga Vertov's 1929 movie "Man with the Movie Camera", here with the soundtrack made by Cinematic Orchestra

Vertov's issued statement at the beginning of the movie:

"The film Man with a Movie Camera represents
Of visual phenomena
(a film without intertitles)
(a film without script)
(a film without actors, without sets, etc.)
This new experimentation work by Kino-Eye is directed towards the creation of an authentically international absolute language of cinema – ABSOLUTE KINOGRAPHY – on the basis of its complete separation from the language of theatre and literature."

VOICINGS Vocalisation vs. Verbalisation
by Laura Malacart

Voicings is born out of the need to expose the potential violence that can be hidden in everyday speech, when the person involved is a foreigner, therefore a subject at times forced (as in the case of political refugees or economic migrants) to exist in another language and in another culture. Languages carry a political status and can be used to bully people socially or institutionally.

Using writing and live performance to camera, I worked with two sets of people who never meet: a group of refugees from an English language class and a group of white British professional actors and voice coaches. It was a key aspect for me (protesting against the sensationalism present in contemporary mainstream television) not to point the camera at the vulnerable subject: my aim was to apply a critique using the privileged subject.

I asked the refugees to write a short account of their problems caused by language barriers when they first came to the UK. These texts, or documented evidence, are the ‘scripts’, which I then give to professional actors to learn.

One script per actor, they have one hour to learn the short script. The one-off session is recorded on video/audio, the actors do not acknowledge the camera.

i say

it may not always be so; and i say
that if your lips, which i have loved, should touch
another's, and your dear strong fingers clutch
his heart, as mine in time not far away;
if on another's face your sweet hair lay
in such silence as i know, or such
great writhing words as, uttering overmuch,
stand helplessly before the spirit at bay;

if this should be, i say if this should be--
you of my heart, send me a little word;
that i may go unto him, and take his hands,
saying, Accept all happiness from me.
Then shall i turn my face and hear one bird
sing terribly afar in the lost lands

com pena de não estar lá...

o blog.
A produtora Cassefaz convida André Murraças para re-criar no 25º Aniversário da morte de António Variações pedaços da vida deste barbeiro português que marcou Portugal, não prrpriamente com um estilo de corte de cabelo, mas com as músicas inesquecíveis que deixou e que se escutam como um eco pertinente nos nossos dias.
Com muita pena de não estar lá, dentro ou fora, dos oitos contentores que fragmentam a vida de António Variações numa experiência performativa, perfeitamente enquadrada em épocas de celebrações dos nossos santos portugueses, e de um António (outro) que marca também as datas.

palavras de domingo

"Une immense espérance a traversé la terre" ... "e destruiu na sua passagem tudo o que valia a pena."

"...sentiu-se quase feliz no seu estado de cegueira."

in "O Amante de Lady Chatterley"
(D.H. Lawrence)

estreia mundial no passado dia 5.

O novo filme de Luc Besson, «Home», vai estrear esta sexta-feira nos cinemas a nível mundial, inclusivamente em Portugal, e, em simultâneo, no YouTube, de acordo com a agência Bloomberg.

A iniciativa conjunta com os estúdios de Hollywood é uma das formas do site de partilha de vídeos conseguir mais popularidade e, consequentemente lucros, junto dos grandes anunciantes, apesar de ser um portal que já alcança uma audiência de 350 milhões de visitantes únicos por mês.

(my pain)

Now listen honey while i say
how can you fix your mind to say you're going away

don't say that we must part
don't break my aching heart
you know you love me
true for many years
love me night and day
can't you see my tears
how can you leave me
listen while i say

After you've gone and left me crying,
After you've gone there's no denying,
You'll feel blue, you'll feel sad,
You'll miss the greatest thing that you ever ever ever had.
There'll come a time, don't you forget it,
There'll come a time when you'll regret it.

Some day when you grow lonely,
Your heart will break like mine and you'll want me only,
After you've gone, after you've gone away

After you've gone and left me crying,
After you've gone there's no denying,
You'll feel blue, you'll feel sad,
You'll miss the greatest pal you ever had.
There'll come a time, don't you forget it,
There'll come a time when you'll regret it.

Some day when you grow lonely,
Your heart will break like mine and you'll want me only,
After you've gone, after you've gone away
After you've gone, after I've gone, away.

from: Nina Simone "After You've Gone"

e tudo gira em torno do mesmo

E tudo gira em torno do mesmo,
ainda que a força de centrifugação
do corpos seja inapta.
Um círculo de fragilidades,
lugares nunca antes visitados;
pontos seguidos de um infinito
descompassado e irregular.
No epicentro de cada tumulto humano
surge a essência da procura, sempre
desviante, incerta, direccionada
a um objectivo comum impossível
de aceitar, (na simplicidade que
existe no teu vago olhar, ansioso
por uma qualquer resposta...)
naturalmente frágil a espiral
de cada indivíduo é contínua.
Ninguém, nem mesmo a chuva
consegue prever o seu próprio destino.

"I look up, I look Down" - Serralves em Festa 2009
Cie Moglice Von-Verx

Duas mulheres (Chloé Moglia e Mélissa Von Vépy) desafiam a gravidade no topo de uma falésia cenografada.
O vazio, o esforço e betão sonorizados, uma luta contra a vertigem; a gravidade actua no seu habitat natural e promove um lugar inóspito no interstício do espaço real, um lugar qualquer onde o movimento de subir e descer a escarpa, de uma qualquer montanha, um plano verticalmente propositado, se transforma num momento duracional de poesia e altruísmo entre dois corpos cúmplices, capazes de alternar as peculiaridades anatómicas a favor de uma perfeita organicidade entre dois seres que inocentemente se debatem entre o estar "lá" em cima, e "cá" em baixo.


« … Le désir du néant, l’attrait du néant, le jeu avec le péril de mort que l’homme s’amuse à exalter dangereusement – c’est-à-dire que l’homme joue à exalter dangereusement ce qui est la condition permanente de son existence pour la passionner, pour passionner l’existence, pour la rendre aventureuse.
Il y aura donc finalement une tentation romanesque, dramatique et très intense, de la mort, dans laquelle s’affirme justement le caractère dramatique de la vie et le fait qu’elle mérite malgré tout qu’on la vive. Elle mérite que nous l’éprouvions et que nous la vivions ... »
