A Truth thats told with bad intent beats all the Lies you can invent.

November 20, 2016

William Blake's quote becomes as relevant as ever with so much political and corporate demagogy.

 

Back in 2013 / 2014 I was in Rio de Janeiro for a good three month period. I was there with my family, and we were invited.

 

Early one morning I jotted down part of the poem , "The Auguries of Innocence" as a starter for a new note book.  This covered an earlier short text I'd written, part of the research for Supra Occidente - an expansion of ¡Lazaro! into a creative universe:

 

"In truth, 

I am your father

And I am your son.

I am whole and

am eternity."

"(...)

A Truth thats told with bad intent

Beats all the Lies you can invent

It is right it should be so

Man was made for Joy & Woe

And when this we rightly know

Thro the World we safely go

(...)"

 

Auguries of Innocence

William Blake

 

In full:

Blake's Auguries of Innocence - built into the stone of poetry and time: the furnace of the soul for all to see.

 

The continuance  and expansion of ¡Lazaro! 's creative universe is producing a number of shorter monologue (including ongoing Diogenes), dance and music pieces. 

 

¡Lazaro! is inspired mainly in the "Lazarillo de Tormes: y de sus fortunas y adversidades", an anonymous XVI century book that cried out the state of affairs into a balance.

 

One of the earlier genesis of ¡Lazaro! was the intention to write a Latin American story for the stage entitled: "Las 5 aflicciones de Lucio Mondragón", briefly sketched by Felix B.Q. and shared at the time with Mathias Britos. 

 

Work for ¡Lazaro! has always been an invocation to the miracle of creative breath, not without a sense of sacrifice and great joy. It appeals to our most visceral senses, hunger and survival amidst the desert.

 

An interview for Caracol Radio, in San Gil, Colombia 2010, clearly shows the social expression of this small and intense passionate nucleus of theatre creators.
