It all started with a coat…. or rather with an image – a sentence that emerged from a stream-of-consciousness writing exercise amongst a group of artists I had gathered to dream up a new performance project. It was the picture of a large black coat with a multitude of small, hidden pockets, harbouring many personal treasures: a pocket coat.
The performance project never took shape, but I had stu... Read more of this blog post »

Eva Weaver liked a quote
Codependent No More by Melody Beattie
“Frequently, when I suggest to people that they detach from a person or problem, they recoil in horror. “Oh, no!” they say. “I could never do that. I love him, or her, too much. I care too much to do that. This problem or person is too important to me. I have to stay attached!” My answer to that is, “WHO SAYS YOU HAVE TO?” I’ve got news—good news. We don’t “have to.” There’s a better way. It’s called “detachment.”3 It may be scary at first, but it will ultimately work better for everyone involved.”
Melody Beattie
The Puppet Boy Of Warsaw by Eva Weaver
"This is really one of the best books I've ever written. Eva Weaver is an amazing writer!"
The Puppet Boy of Warsaw by Eva Weaver
"Humanity?

What a wonderful read,so beautifully told
Description of time place and people came
Alive, to think that we can treat each other
In such an inhuman way,I hope will make
Us stop and think what we may perpetuate

Gender Trouble by Judith Butler
“If Lacan presumes that female homosexuality issues from a disappointed heterosexuality, as observation is said to show, could it not be equally clear to the observer that heterosexuality issues from a disappointed homosexuality?”

“La compañía de las marionetas nos ayudaba a olvidarnos durante un rato del mundo de los adultos. Un mundo que creaba cosas desagradables, como un gueto para los judíos. Un mundo que no podíamos entender.”
Eva Weaver, Todo lo que cabe en los bolsillos

“Resulta extraño, pero lo cierto es que el miedo tiene un sabor propio: sabe a sangre, a hierro, es un regusto penetrante y amargo. En aquel entonces, todo lo que comía me sabía a miedo.”
Eva Weaver, Todo lo que cabe en los bolsillos

“La lógica había desaparecido, y tan sólo sobrevivía el cruel azar del destino. ¿Cómo podíamos distinguir entre el soldado que se acordaba de su humanidad y el que simplemente obedecía ordenes y mataba? Yo había visto a las ratas cambiar de actitud en un abrir y cerrar de ojos: mientras la propaganda que había en sus carteles de vivos colores proclamaba que nosotros éramos gusanos, no tenían problema alguno en divertirse con nuestros artistas, se dejaban entretener por nuestros músicos y nuestros números de cabaré, y al día siguiente nos mataban sin parpadear siquiera. ¿Pero acaso no compartíamos todos la misma biología: un corazón que latía, dos pulmones, sangre roja y caliente?”

“The person in New York is more likely to want and need a harder touch in order to crack through the armor they have built up to protect their hearts and other soft tender parts.”
Barbara Carrellas, Urban Tantra: Sacred Sex for the Twenty-first Century

“The truth is, men are not from Mars and women are not from Venus. We are all earthlings whose penises and vaginas came from exactly the same type of fetal tissue. This is why, in addition to penises and vaginas, we also have a wide spectrum of intersex genitals, which medical science is only now slowly coming to accept as 'normal.”
Barbara Carrellas, Urban Tantra: Sacred Sex for the Twenty-First Century

“. . . [O]nce we begin to feel deeply all the aspects of our lives, we begin to demand from ourselves and from our life-pursuits that they feel in accordance with that joy which we know ourselves to be capable of. Our erotic knowledge empowers us, becomes a lens through which we scrutinize all aspects of our existence, forcing us to evaluate those aspects honestly in terms of their relative meaning within our lives."

"The erotic is a resource within each of us that lies in a deeply female and spiritual plane, firmly rooted in the power of our unexpressed or unrecognized feeling."

"Of course, women so empowered are dangerous. So we are taught to separate the erotic from most vital areas of our lives other than sex.”
Audre Lorde
