when there is nothing

when there is nothing ... when articulating the necessity of witnessing a theater act i often choose the phrase "art as nourishment" ... the bread of life ... yet this metaphor of consumption is problematic ... presencing a performance is to encounter a flow/current/process/energy (dancingness) which moves the "I" ... the self by meeting the self breaks down the existential trap of being human ... the personal is stripped bare ... & in the barrenness a lively silent stillness shines (aura) ... there is something ... there is something unutterable ... when there is something theater is presencing dancingness aura ...
