I am showing a selection of wonderful silent films in my performing space.
Yesterday was the first session and the weather became nasty, by nasty I mean really nasty. It felt almost like a hurricane. I had a furious river in front of the performing space.
I doubted about having any public, because even if someone wanted to go, there was no way of accessing the street. So after waiting patiently for someone to appear, I decided to play Koyaanisqatsi. I had seen this film just in TV and wanted to watch it in the big screen.
The rain was furiously banging on the ceiling and the seagulls shouting, while slowly the impressive images began to display accompanied by the wonderful composition of Philip Glass . Actually besides his piano pieces, this I think is one of his best compositions.
I had no public, but the experience was unique.
I hope there is no rain tonight.
