"…work in between the cracks, where the voice starts dancing, where the body starts singing, where theater becomes cinema…"

Agnes Obel – Riverside

“The river will be your eyes and ears / I walk to the borders on my own

Fall in the water just like a stone

Chilled to the marrow in them bones / Why do I go here all alone”

Agnes Obel

Denmark: Agnes Obel – Riverside 

“Down by the river by the boats, where everybody goes to be alone

where you wont see any rising sun

Down to the river we will run

when by the water we drink to the dregs

Look at the stones on the riverbed, I can tell from your eyes

you’ve never been by the riverside

Down by the water the riverbed, somebody calls you somebody says

swim with the current and float away

Down by the river every day, oh my God I see how everything is torn in the river deep

and I don’t know why I go the way

Down by the riverside, to wash off the dirt on the riverside

go to the water so very near

the river will be your eyes and ears

I walk to the borders on my own, fall in the water just like a stone

Chilled to the marrow in them bones, why do I go here all alone

Oh my God I see how everything is torn in the river deep

And I don’t know why I go the way

Down by the riverside”
