only breath

Porto 2017 with Sven Wu Wei

Inspired by the poem of Rumi: Only Breath

This duo-performance, was improvised in 50 minutes of hypnotic sound and soul contact! 
Something new is coming...only breath!

"Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu
Buddhist, sufi, or zen. Not any religion

or cultural system. I am not from the East
or the West, not out of the ocean or up

from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all. I do not exist,

am not an entity in this world or in the next,
did not descend from Adam and Eve or any

origin story. My place is placeless, a trace
of the traceless. Neither body or soul.

I belong to the beloved, have seen the two
worlds as one and that one call to and know,

first, last, outer, inner, only that
breath breathing human being."
