BLACK SUN

ABOUT BLACK SUN

In co-production with the Municipality of Bærum ”Black Sun” is based on Antonin Artaud’s text “Tutuguri” – a poetic description of the Native Mexican Tarahumara people’s ritual of Sun worship.

——-

I do not know whether it is the wind rising
Or a wind that rises out of this music from back then
Which still is today
But it feels like being whipped by a breathing of the night
A breath that has ascended from a disappeared
Humankind’s caves and is showing its face here
A painted face,
Sneering, with merciless features
Be pure and chaste
It seems to say
Be virginal.
