  relationships making
sorry we insist! but we need some feedback


05/06/2003, luz algranti, buenos aires
 
  Doubtfull logbook We are Santiago, Walter and Luz. (Tatiana is touring with a play). Part of the Argentinian crew. We met last week and started working on the project. Our first idea is to make an article together. We thought about making a cadavre exquis. Voilá. There are two versions available: spanish-english and just english.

Doubt´s logbook...
Or a doubtfull logbook...
That´s what we decided to do on our second meeting. It was a cold but sunny afternoon in the south. We decided that every one of us would write one part of this logbook.
And it has just started, come and see – if you need it, we can make a stop so that you go quickly to the restroom...-
We are four persons at the buenos aires team, and we meet in order to try to create a working atmosphere...
We decided to gather to get to know each other better and we realized that we are really enthousiastic regarding the project, that we are looking forward to start working and that we´ve got doubts ... And that´s exactly when these doubts break into us and steal our wallets and the very last one borrows a cigarrette from us.
You might be aware of how hard times are here...
In this second meeting we have decided to start with music. Two of the crew are musicians (and very handsome as well)…(and really sexy, in fact, I´m one of them).
Every one of us will bring a song to the next meeting and some texts to share with the others...
We have also decided to warm up before each meeting...

We thought about start flirting with tango.About using clown techniques. About kneating a net a knot or something between us. About writting a cadavre exquis so to scare away our starting-panic by sharing it with the mutated comunity. And here we are. In the middle of this exorcism. Trying not to freak out of uncertainty and scribble and gather and drink “mate”. So these are our first lines together.

It is the way that best became our need to do something, the spiritual need to break the “nothing one doesn’t do”, whith the “nothing that one does do”. As our dearest friend Lao Tse put it once (I´m not quite sure when) , “everything comes from, and want´s to come back to nothingness”. What he didn´t say is how hard do things try to stay in nothingness!
So here we are now “coming from”, and we didn´t discussed it, but we were all getting a little uncomfortable, a little worried with that long inability to get together, a long period of emails and phone calls leading to –Oh my God!- NOTHING. So now we´ll celebrate our coming out of it by gathering, and singing, and dancing and performing, like in the old days…We deserve it, of course, because, in the end, we still got nothing to do. And that´s…
encouraging?


spanish- english version

Bitácora de dudas...
Una bitácora dudosa...
Es lo que decidimos en una tarde fría, pero soleada, al sur , bien al sur, hacer en nuestra 2da reunión. Decidimos que cada uno escribiría un bloque de la misma.
Es esto que acaba de comenzar, pasen y vean -si lo necesitan podemos parar para que realicen una breve pero contundente incursión a los baños...-
En total somos 4 los integrantes del grupo de personas de Buenos Aires, que nos reunimos a intentar crear cierto clima de trabajo...
Decidimos juntarnos para conocernos mejor, y nos damos cuenta de que estamos muy entusiasmados con el proyecto, que tenemos muchas ganas de trabajar, y que tenemos dudas... Y ahí nos asaltan las dudas y nos roban las billeteras y una rezagada nos pide si le convidamos un cigarrillo.
Tal vez sepan lo difícil que están los tiempos por aquí...
En esta segunda reunión decidimos arrancar por el lado de la música, dos de nuestros integrantes son músicos (y muy bien parecidos también)...(y muy sexies además, de hecho, quien escribe esta parte de la bitácora soy yo uno de los agraciados músicos...)0
Cada uno traería alguna canción que quisiera cantar y además algunos textos que quisiera compartir con los otros...
También decidimos realizar algún trabajo de entrada en calor antes de empezar cada encuentro.

feedback coming - 05/06/2003, florlarosa@datafull.com
By chance I discovered this page, this project, this words. By "chance"? I´m now entering this matrix and begining to crawl. How will it turn?, who knows... will I be able to stand up one day? to walk? to run?
Meanwhile I hope to be the fifth sitting around your table for 4.

sitting in chairs - 05/06/2003, bridget gethins, richmond
this sounds exciting to me- here in Richmond. so far our team has talked sitting in chairs and eaten food that I have made ( I like to cook) we have had GREAT talking in there chairs, but I think you all in Buenos Aires have the right idea- music, dancing and creating to see how it goes. My hands are clapping and in my minds eye I am joining in the process!!!
