Snarky Puppy at MÜPA


Tonight’s event at MÜPA in Budapest … delightful music … great musicians … I especially liked the drummer man …. but they were all fantastic and every one had his own solo during the night …

The band is called Snarky Puppy and tonight they were 8 in the band. They are 25 rotating. Just arrived in Budapest from Japan this morning.

Arctic Circle – In Love

I always fall in love with great artistry … latest was at Vigadó in Budapest during the concert ”Arctic Circle”. I immediately fell in love with the conductor and violinist John Storgårds. It was incredible and fantastic how he held and pulled the instruments and tunes in his hands. Like he controlled transparent strings to each instrument in the orchestra.

wondering about
how passionate your heart is
in artistry measured

I was so fascinated by his great music artistry and enjoyed the event right into my bones and spine. So now I am in love with John Storgårds.

We have a dream

I went to Lund Art Hall today because I wanted to see the photo exhibition ”We have a dream”. Wonderful photo portraits all of them. Only one I didn’t like and also didn’t understan why it was there. I will tell you in the end of my post about this.

It was strong feelings when reading about these fantastic humans. So strong I couldn’t see and read about all of them so I must go back another day. Actually I often go to the Art Hall.

culture in life
feelings in every cell – strong
soul of human art

So strong women!
I remember when I first heard about the yazidi women and how they were treated I wrote a poem …

sisters holding hands
were brutally torn apart
the cold knife spoke death

… after reading this.

When I saw Jan Eliasson 2nd in UN I thought he should be changed …. and that Anders Kompass should be there in his place! Anders Kompass did a great thing for the abused children – abused by UN soldiers. Jan E didn’s stand up for Anders K or for the children!
What has Jan Eliasson done except being true to his political party in Sweden!!!!



Falling & Rising

Yosa Buson one of ”the big five” (Basho, Issa, Buson, Chiyo-Ni and Shiki) – was born in Kema Settsu, where several waterfalls can be seen.

Waterfalls are beautiful – also poetic, dramatic and a fresh nature phenomena. But – there always is a but – I wouldn’t live close to one. Just think – never a quiet moment!  No I prefer visiting waterfalls and enjoy them – get inspired. Now thinking about the beautiful Brudslöjan – The Bridal Veil – between Sweden and Norway. I visited it once skiing – it was all frozen at that time.

like a veil
hiding the shy flower – water

Just came home after an evening with Scottish contemporary dancers. Some days ago I enjoyed dancers from Netherlands. So I am in a good mood. Swaying on my cloud-look-alike surfing board on every named waterfall this minute on Internet. So beware – I will visit yours!

water drops
like surfing pirates – with swords
glistering falling

The first Scottish performance today was extraordinary! Also funny. The audience – and of course I – was so amused. First part they performed as if they were the instruments in an orchestra playing classic music. Adorable! And the funny part about birds seducing each other in a human-look-alike flamboyant way. I took that scen with me home smiling all the way.

I didn’t meet ”my” favorite choreographer this night. Imagine he is too busy with the premier to soon take place which he told me about last time. He looked really tired then. I’m looking forward that performance in a few days. But – there always is a but – before that I have other events to attend. My schedule is fully booked.

I don’t know why I choose this opposite-kind-of-water-fall …. rising water …


I only use my own photos here and … so sorry ….  I don’t find any falling water only rising. Here is a really strong one:

En Slurk av Dans

Igår kväll var jag på en intressant föreställning. Det var ett nederländskt danskompani tydligen välkänt i världen. Netherlands Dance Theatre 2. De framförde tre olika akter. Den första Sad Case upplevde jag som unik i contemporary och jag tänkte tankar som detta är Contemporary – Cartoon style. Så kreativt! Så skickliga dansare. Jag njöt varje sekund. Imponeras alltid av dansares kroppskontroll. Sedan upplever jag alltid dansare som utför sina rörelser och det kan de göra hur bra som helst … men om de inte gör det på ett sätt där de blir ”ett med musiken” … De dansare som nått dit blir mina favoriter. I Sad Case stack framförallt den blonde dansaren ut. Helt sanslöst duktig! Jag vet att jag är en upplevande människa där den speciella känslan blir viktig. Och som jag hoppas på att få uppleva. När jag diskuterade med en av mina favoritkoreografer här – visade det sig att han har samma favoriter som jag. Det kändes som en glad bekräftelse. Trots att jag inte alls är ”skolad” inom området kan jag lita på min känsla – ja så kändes det.

Den sista akten Cacti (Kaktus) var också intressant. Där användes 16 boxar i olika höjder och stora nog för varje dansare att utföra rörelser även liggandes. De fyllde alltså scenen. Boxarna alltså. Dansarna fyllde scenen på ett annat sätt liksom kaktusarna.
Plötsligt fann jag mig själv fångad av boxarna. Konstaterade de olika höjderna. Tänkte då att de är nog skapade för att få plats i varandra. Förenklar transporten. Fyra av varje. Njöt av föreställningen under tiden. Boxarna arrangerades om i intressanta kompositioner. Liksom dansarna.

Nu tänker jag att … liksom en slurk ur ett glas fyllt med härlig somrig juice … blev mina ‘lådtankar’ som en slurk ur en fantastisk dans föreställning.
