Programme Note by Rebecca Saunders

English
‘...a person who demands attention purely by her being there... processes of development are not unfolded, but instead "conditions of being" are presented in hard-edged sections that cut into each other ...figures that did nothing but simply were.’
Gertrude Stein on her book Ida, 1941.

German
‘...ein Mensch, der die Aufmerksamkeit fesselt allein durch sein Dasein, es sind nicht Entwicklungen, die entfaltet werden, sondern “Seinzustände”, die in harten Schnitten aneinandergefügt sind ...Figuren, die nichts taten, sondern waren.’
über das Buch Ida von Gertrude Stein, Suhrkamp Verlag
