NOW - 3.11.2010 - October that was very special

It happened in some way that my arms were opened widely in October, so many things could be embraced at once.

Look on the right – there’s a book to publish,
Look on the left – there’s a CD to finish,
Go ahead – there’s a performance to create,
Think what’s behind – there’s memories to write down.

I had to put off the trousers to avoid tearing them; and the DEREVO train had to roll on three different tracks…

 


 

October 22nd: an improvisation in the Nikolayevsky Hall at the Hermitage in St. Petersburg.

Something weird is here:

 


 

Then there was a loud week (since we were laughing rather loudly) spent with the recording of the new Album by Anton and the Positive Band „Cat on Accordion“.

Something funny is here:

Then the new book «Profession: Harlekin».

We won’t show you the book quite yet (it’s out on November the 4th) but from the cuttings and clippings Nastya Ponomareva could glue together a nice animation.

Here it is:

 


 

And that’s all in just 11 days!

This time I’ve spent about 20 days in St. Petersburg. This duration must be a record for my brain. Now I’m in Germany and I think about it. I think it’s not JUST some differences between the countries and people, it’s an abyss which is getting wider and deeper.

Soon we’ll not be able to understand or see each other. Hence we’ll not disturb each others’ own madness.

The live action „Cat on Accordion“ that happened in September in the courtyard of Mikhailovsky Castle in St. Petersburg requires some deeper realisation. I hope you’ll be able to see and hear what happened there soon.

    Очень жаль, “Скоро мы перестанем понимать и видеть друг друга”
    А в каком издательстве книга выходит? Где искать?

    > А в каком издательстве книга выходит? Где искать?

    искать можно и нужно, прежде всего, на спектаклях DEREVO.
