I’m nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there’s a pair of us — don’t tell!
They’d banish us, you know.
How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!
Looking at your portrait picture… what do you see? Nothing. What do you like about yourself? Nothing.
Nobody, or in my case only body, flesh, bones, heart, veins – existing, beating, breathing- projecting all I am not. Seeing so much of who I am not, I can’t see or find what I am – who am I?
Or at least, who is the person I can live with and leave peacefully?
Feel somebody, like the others do.
The new piece of Dana Raz in collaboration with the musician Héctor Blanco, exposes us to the depths of a soul, most intimate places of thoughts, gives us a look at the doubts of an essence that a person can have. In the piece, they peel all you know or what you think you know about them and share their search with you, a search that may not be found completely, but be done. Maybe one day we will like our portrait picture like other people do.
