Reflections of a Skyline

Conocí este video gracias a mi amiga Paola. Dirigido por Richard Jakes y Michael Tamman, y con las actuaciones de Fiona Pearce y Christopher Dunlop, Reflections on a Skyline muestra la conversación en la que dos amantes expresan todo el amor que siente el uno por el otro. A través de sus movimientos, silencios y miradas, ambos personajes logran cautivar y hermosamente estremecer al espectador. El diálogo es un fragmento de una obra llamada “Crave”, escrita por la dramaturga inglesa Sarah Kane:

And I wanna play hide-and seek, and give you my clothes, tell you I love your shoes and sit on the steps while you take a bath and massage your neck, and kiss your face, and hold your hand, and go for a walk…

Not mind when you eat my food.

And meet you at Rudy’s, and talk about your day, talk about your day, and laugh at your… your paranoia!

And give you tapes you don’t listen to, watch great films, watch terrible films.

And tell you about the TV program I saw the night before… and not laugh at your jokes.

Want you in the morning, but let you sleep in for a while.

Tell you how much I love your eyes, your lips, your neck, your tits, your arse.

And sit on the steps smoking ‘til your neighbors come home.

And sit on the steps smoking ‘til your neighbors come home.

And worry when you are late. And be amazed when you are early.

And give you sunflowers, and go to your party and dance.

Be sorry when I’m wrong and happy when you forgive me.

Look at your photos wish I’d had known you forever.

Hearing your voice in my hear. Feel your skin on my skin.

And get scared when you are angry, and tell you you are gorgeous, and hug you when you are anxious, and hold you when you are hurt, and want you when I smell you.

And offend you when I touch you, and whimper when I’m next to you, and whimper when I’m not.

Dribble on your breast, smother you in the night and get cold when you take the blanket, and hot when you don’t.

And melt when you smile, and dissolve when you laugh.

But not understand how you think I’m rejecting you when I’m not rejecting you,  and wonder how you could think I’d ever reject you.

And wonder who you are but accept you anyway.

And tell you about the tree angel, the enchanted forest boy who flew across the ocean because he loved you.

And buy you presents you don’t want, and take them away again, and ask you to marry me, and you will say no again, but keep on asking because though you don’t think I don’t mean it, but I always have from the first time I asked you.

I wander the city, thinking, but it’s empty without you, but I want what you want, and think I’m losing myself, but but, but, I’ll tell you the worst of me and try to give you the best of me, because you don’t deserve any less.

Answer your questions when I’d rather not, and tell you the truth when I really don’t want to, and try to be honest because I know you prefer it.

And think it’s all over but hang on for just ten more minutes before you throw me out of your life.

Forget who I am and let me try to get closer to you, and somehow, somehow, somehow communicate some of the overwhelming, undying, overpowering, unconditional, all encompassing, heart enriching, mind expanding, ongoing, never ending… LOVE…I have for you.
