dust to dust


A PERFORMANCE by Theresa Byrnes November 2011


From primordial humus to osmotic independence, I move from one primordial state to another. Life oozed from the ocean and into the earth 2 billon years ago, all living creatures including humans rose from that. Between the passive moon and the active sun is the earth. We humans roam free with the pull of the tides still in our organs.

The mess and filth we clean and control is in actual fact stardust. The Earth is the compacted dust of thousands of exploding stars. From dirt we came and to dirt we shall return and in between is life. We are custodians of the most magical substance — dirt, nothing more and nothing less — it is a grand job.
