Pavilion Dance South West-Thursday night is Dance Night
‘Chalk’ & ‘Of Land and Tongue’ By Theo Clinkard
A man stands on a Cliff top. White.
He goes in a Cave. Falling. Raining Rocks.
Cliffs, chalk, high bones and sea.
Music was made by vegetables.
Things happening live but they carried on after, setting the scenes of performance in an interesting
Wow. A park full of untranslatable things.
Happenings in a world of delightful land.
But it starts to rain on a girl, a woman in a misty frost scene and alone.
A night Club.
Dark, dancing in clumps of people who are on phones.
The British Ignorance,
Language and forgotten words.
A lovely world you have made without the translation because,
It’s not there.
