Earth laughs in flowers

"Being perfect artists and ingenuous poets, the Chinese have piously preserved the love and holy cult of flowers; one of the very rare and most ancient traditions which has survived their decadence. And since flowers had to be distinguished from each other, they have attributed graceful analogies to them, dreamy images, pure and passionate names which perpetuate and harmonize in our minds the sensations of gentle charm and violent intoxication with which they inspire us. So it is that certain peonies, their favorite flower, are saluted by the Chinese, according to their form or color, by these delicious names, each an entire poem and an entire novel: The Young Girl Who Offers Her Breasts, or: The Water That Sleeps Beneath the Moon, or: The Sunlight in the Forest, or: The First Desire of the Reclining Virgin, or: My Gown Is No Longer All White Because in Tearing It the Son of Heaven Left a Little Rosy Stain; or, even better, this one: I Possessed My Lover in the Garden. "

~Octave Mirbeau, Torture Garden, "The Garden," Chapter 5

...can't believe I have Grape Hyacinth in the garden too :)

essence of tulips

Guarded within the old red wall's embrace,

Marshalled like soldiers in gay company,
The tulips stand arrayed. Here infantry
Wheels out into the sunlight.

"Proorocul Ilie"

Dupa mai mult de o luna in care am lucrat ca nebunii ...iata, munca n-a fost in zadar. Azi vom avea premiera spectacolului "Proorocul Ilie". Suntem obositi cu totii, dar sper ca vom face un spectacol frumos...pareri si reactii ....in zilele post premiera :)Cateva informatii despre:
Premiera spectacolului cu piesa "Proorocul Ilie" de Tadeusz Słobodzianek
24.04., ora 19.00 , Teatrul Municipal Baia Mare, str Crişan nr. 8.
Tadeusz Słobodzianek (n. 1955) este dramaturg, regizor, secretar literar, fondator şi conducător al Laboratorium Dramatu din Varşovia. A debutat în dramaturgie în anii 70, până atunci scriind sub pseudonimul Jan Koniecpolski recenzii teatrale severe şi fără compromisuri pentru săptămânalul “Polityka”. Prorocul Ilie/Prorok Ilja (1991) constituie a doua parte din dilogia de la Teatrul Wierszalin, prima parte fiind constituită de piesa Ţarul Nicolae/Car Mikołaj (1987). "Proorocul Ilie" îşi plasează acţiunea în anii 30 ai secolului XX, la graniţa dintre Polonia şi Bielorusia, prorocul fiind un ţăran analfabet în care ţăranii văd un al doilea Hristos. Prin urmare se hotărăsc să-l răstignească pe Ilie (personajul) pentru a mântui lumea dură în care trăiau.
ILIE - proroc de la ţară (DORU PRESECAN)
OLGA –păcătoasa, ulterior sfântă (INNA ANDRIUCĂ)
WIERA – sfântă, ulterior păcătoasă (GABRIELA CHIRILĂ, DIANA PODĂREANU),
ROTSCHILD – negustor din Białystok (VALERIU DORAN)
BONDAR – ulterior Sperietoare de Păsări (IONUŢ MATEESCU)
MARCZUK – ulterior Soldat roman (ŞERBAN BORDA)
AĆKO – ulterior Pilat (DAN CORDEA)
PAŁASZKA – ulterior Nevasta lui Pilat (DANA ILIE BĂRBOSU)
TÂNĂRA – ulterior Sfânta Veronica (GABRIELA DEL-PUPO)
ORBUL – tatăl acesteia (VASILE PAL)

half of day off...

For a month now, we've been working like crazy at the theatre for this new play... We'll finnaly have the premiere this comming saturday, on the 24th of april. Hope the spectators will receive it well, cause it's a bit ... well, if you stronlgy believe in Chruch and all that religious stuff, you'd might not like it. But it's fun, and it's a must see. I will tel you more in my future posts.I want to tell you guys how this second part of the day represented some time off from the theatre work. It was like a blessing...really, cause I am more tired day by day... I need to rest and it's like I never got time to do that. I woke up early in the morning, then go to the theatre until 2 p.m., then out in town to solve all kind of problems, eat if I get a chance, then back to rehearsals from 6 p.m. till late 10 p.m. When home, I get to bed only after 1 am at night...Fore example, a couple of nights ago, I was cooking some chicken soup at 2 a.m. for the coming day...and soooo on... The good thing is that on the 26th of april, the movie I've shot last autumn,it's gonna have the premiere too! FINALLY!!!!!!
So anxious to see it! Will tell you more soon! :)
Back to today...when I got out from the theatre reahearsals, it was so sunny, so nice to soak up the sun...we've decided to go and buy some fresh vegetables from the market near the theatre... And with it, Mate bought me some spring flowers that I adore! For some reason, I made some kind of crush on Grape Hyacinth, so I was very happy to see them for sale. Got some of those and 3 beautiful tulips from a nice old lady :) And then in the evening, we went out for a walk in the park...indulged ourselves with some sugar cotton :))
It always reminds me of childhood :)
Enjoy the pics and hope you had a great weekend everybody!
