Kinitiras hosts an improvisational performance by the Spanish Butoh dancer Marianela León and the musician George Kokkinaris.
Over the red roses, the rain falls
big drops – falling down fast
to save the flowers I remove the petals
i put them inside my pockets with care
with the one hand I grasp the stem thorns
with the other I fondle the thorns cause the scratch the skin
I spread my wounded hand to you
You don’t look at it, pretending that you don’t see it
I draw my hand back
I hide it in my pocket,
outside everywhere is mud
and the world is laughing as staring at thornless stems
You don’t know that blood flows on the petals
Oh whatever I do it turns to mud
