Mei 1915

Voor die maand verby is:

 

by John McCrae, May 1915

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Die Dans

zeits

Ons dans
in skaduprosessie
links die verhoog op.
Elk in eie ritme
en teen eie pas.

Ons dans
in skaduprosessie,
begelei deur musiek,
onder die stok
van ‘n onverbiddelike dirigent.

Ons dans
in skaduprosessie,
elk in eie ritme
en teen eie pas,
regs die verhoog af.

More sweetly play the dance
William Kentridge
Zeits MOCAA Kaapstad

Die nuwe Zeits is by die Waterfront in Kaapstad. ‘n Wonderbaarlike ruimte geskep in ‘n ou graansilo. Toegang is gratis op sekere dae vir Suid Afrikaanse burgers. Die argitektuur alleen is al die moeite werd.

Maar bowe alles, gaan kyk na die Kentridge (More sweetly play the dance) video. Dit word geprojekteer teen verskeie skerms d.m.v. gesinkroniseerde projektors. ‘n Must See and not to be missed!

That which we do not remember

kentridge

William Kentridge

That which we do not remember

gedane sake het geen keer,
woorde eens geuiter
keer nimmer weer.

herinnering aan sondes begaan
bly ons by
en sal nooit vergaan.

maar die alledaagse sleur
van sorg en wroeg
vir ons daaglikse brood
is gou vergete
en laat geen spoor.

The evil that men do lives after them,
The good is oft interred with their bones.
William Shakespeare: Julius Caesar

Daar is ‘n besondere uitstalling van William Kentridge getitleld “That which we do not remember” by die Goodman Galery in Woodstock, Kaapstad. ‘n “must see“!
