FUFU


THE FUTURE OF OUR FUTURE
Parade for an unforgetten song.
performance during planet oedipus festival 2018, Amsterdam

WE ARE ALL SITTING IN THIS BIG AND BEAUTIFUL SHRINE
MADE WITH WOOD
NOBLE


THIS SANCTUARY IS IN THE MIDLE OF A GIANT UNINHABITED FOREST MADE OF WEEPING TREES WITH GIGANTIC TRUNKS THESE TREES ARE SURROUNDED BY MOUNTAINS
THERE ARE NO LONGER CITIES
BUT THIS GIANT FOREST ALL AROUN

WITHIN OUR WOODEN MAUSOLEUM WE ARE 1000 PEOPLE SITTING IN ONE BENCH
ALL TOGETHER WE COMPOSE A CHOIR
A SILENT CHOIR

WE SEEK THE LIGHT
WE SEEK THE LIGHT

BEFORE TO START SINGING
WE BEGIN A PROCESSION
SLOWLY
A WALK IN THE FOREST
UP AND DOWN
A FULL CIRCLE

FIRST WE ARE GUIDED BY A SOUND SOURCE
WE FOLLOW THIS MELODY
HARMONY

COME AFTER THE GLOW
EVANESCENCE
WE FOLLOW THE LIGHT
WE FOLLOW THE LIGHT
INNOCENCE
THE WALK IS LONG BUT NEVER TIRESOME
WE DO NOT STOP

NEVER







THE LIGHT AND THE SOUND SOURCE
IS A PRESENCE
A BEAUTIFUL FORCE
IN A SHAPE OF A GIRL

EVERYTHING SEEMS PEACEFUL AND UNIFIED

THEN COME THE WOODEN BRIDGE
THE REMAINS OF OUR MODERNITY
THE FUTURE OF THE FUTURE

WE ARE BLIND
THE PRESENCE TOO
SHE LEADS THE WAY

EVERYTHING SEEMS PEACEFUL AND UNIFIED

THEN COME THE WOODEN BRIDGE
THE REMAINS OF OUR MODERNITY
THE FUTURE OF THE FUTURE

WE ARE BLIND
THE PRESENCE TOO
SHE LEADS THE WAY

THE BRIDGE IS CRACKED IN SEVERAL PLACES
SUDDENLY
ONE OF HER LEG GET TRAPPED
AND CROSSED THE FLOOR
WE ARE ALL CUT IN OUR TRACKS
STRANGELY, SHE IS NOT

THE SOUND CONTINUE

FROM THIS HALO OF LIGHT
WE ARE ABLE TO DISTINGUISH A FACE
A BEAUTIFUL VISAGE
FULL OF BLISS


A FRIGHTENED MAN
WHO STANDS BEHIND HER
MANAGE TO MOVE HER OUT
AND HEAL HER LEG
WITH LEAVES AND BERRIES
FROM THE WEEPING TREES
AND AS IF NOTHING HAD HAPPENED
THE MARCH RESUMED

1000 VOICES ROSE IN UNISON!

HER VOICE RISES HIGHER IN THE SKY
IN A VERY BEAUTIFUL SONG
THAT I CAN NOT REMEMBER
BUT THAT IS PART OF ME
