In the middle, there is a work of art. Authors, performers, theorists, spectators, managers, and simply everyone, head towards it and unfold from it. The work is not at the end or at the beginning. It’s in the middle. And there’s the KITCHEN all around!
However, this work is not a deserted island. It does not appear and does not disappear without context. We think, feel, communicate, travel, see, hear, teach, learn. THE KITCHEN is a space where you can read, see, watch. It is something what happens around, under, over, behind, before, after. With the aim to get to the work of art, but often without intention or immediately apparent connection. The work of art doesn’t always start just because you want. Many times you are not aware of its context, birth or impact.
Thoughts, life experiences, skills of authors, performers, theorists move around the center, around the work of art. Some is experience from pedagogical practice, some is practicing a musical instrument, a visit to a foreign country, simple observations, reflections on the meaning and forms of art. Somewhere there is even another work behind the work of art, which was created as a study, preparation or, conversely, as a need after the creation of something else. Somewhere text, somewhere photos, audio, video, drawing or everything together. Something happened at home, something during rehearsals, something at a workshop, a walk in the woods, a cruise at sea, playing with a child or waiting at the airport. The creative mind is in motion. Sometimes it has to replenish energy or it can happen that something stops it for a short time. However, as long as it lives, it will still try to get moving again!
In the KITCHEN you will find contributions from several authors, from several professions, from several countries. Under each post you will find their biographies and links to their creation and work. And there are more links and inspirations, so this journey will not end and no one will stop you in your discoverings. From antient to the present, from poetry to analysis, from vocal techniques to diary entries of the creative process. You can get lost, find, not understand, surprise, learn. And that’s good. Different natures, different experiences, different approaches, different thinking and yet connected, directed and moving around a common center.
Read, watch, listen. Before or after the work of art. And during the work, be with it and in it!
