TURN – a score for the long nights


‘The future is dark, which is on the whole, the best thing the future can be, I think.’
Virginia Woolf. January 18th. 1915.
Turn towards the darkness
As dusk arrives
Turn off the lights,
place a lighted candle in the window
walk into the nighttime
eventually, when the darkness has absorbed you, and you it,
turn, walk back towards the candle light
when you arrive, blow out the candle, move in the darkness- feel its materiality envelop you
when complete, write from your body
*(You may not wish to leave your home, if so, complete this score by walking through the interior of your darkening household…be with the duration of the turn to nighttime)
Made for Cwm Elan residency. Cymru/ Wales. 2017
