And then there is another way to go: with pieces that shun documentation and allegorize political events to make them work as art. But, as a couple of perplexing examples on our local stages have shown, even they must exercise great balancing skills or fall short of their aims.
The fact that these lyrics happen to be shallow augments the problem but is not its cause. Even if they had been imaginative and clever, the explicitness of words is jarring next to the obliqueness of the music and dance.
Editorial Reviews. About the Author. Susie Flashman Jarvis is a trained counsellor and author of Potholes & Belly-flops. She is interviewing with Jeff Lucas for. Potholes and Belly-flops: Page 3 Model's Journey from Drug Addiction and Promiscuity to Daughter of God [Susie Flashman Jarvis, Jennifer Rees Larcombe ] on.
Its suggestions of anguish, dominance, violation and pain are acutely visceral. But when it moves into the realm of the conscious mind by explaining some of this through language, ideas shrivel.
Even the dance seems diminished and despoiled. The more specific and clear it tries to be, the less interesting it becomes. The flight of fancy belly-flops, and we have another forced analogy--this one with the Faust legend. Henry Foustka, who works for a science institute in what appears to be a highly controlled totalitarian state, decides to dabble in the black arts.
He succeeds in conjuring up a cunning Chaplinesque devil with smelly feet whom he quickly wants to repudiate. But no luck. But while intrigued by the Faustian idea, Havel who has never had a chance to see how his plays work on stage has left too many loose ends flapping in the wind.
What, is Foustka looking for? A new belief?
Or, as director Richard Jordan has even suggested, a soul? Why go to the devil to get that? Havel, it seems, tried to make a political statement without paying enough attention to making a play. There are too many unanswered questions. He is content to play with surfaces.
Right now the devil is played as a harmless imp and Foustka as a spineless, upwardly mobile cad with a taste for kinky sex, caught doing naughty things with candles and incantations.
