We don’t see each other often, but I know you surf the Internet sometimes. I will write openly here.
“…Darling, you’ve got mixed up with a devil…“ – it’s from some opera, actually.
Probably DEREVO is beautiful and perfect on stage when you’re looking from a distance, from the back rows. And afterwards – in your dreams and remembrances.
Don’t come closer. You’ll see details, nuances. You’ll see stupid everyday training; notes, doubts, tears. A simplified language of illiterate machines, which have only two tasks: to build the bridge between the body and sensation, to weaken the commanding system of the brain; and another one – to live in a fairytale, to live in an eluding world, and to drag the lovely public in there without asking for their permission.
There are exercises and exercises. The system developed by DEREVO, which we still follow, affects the complexity of human perception of the world: emotional, physical and mental.
Now after many years of work I can say that the consequences are irreversible and lead the participants of the experiment too far beyond.
Unfortunately I’m on the threshold of insanity too.
On February 5th, 2007, DEREVO performed an action “The Squirrel” in the “Osobnyak” theatre in St. Petersburg.
