The abandoned stage of the industrial theater


“When a historic building is left to decay, 
A theatre where once, famous names used to play.
Its stage steeped with memories of happier days, 
Of concerts, comedians and actors in plays.”

(G.B. Hough in Ode To A Dead Theatre (Morecambe Winter Gardens Uk))

The end of mining …


“Hinab, ihr Brüder! in den Schacht!
Hinab mit frohem Mut!
Es ist ein Gott, der für uns wacht,
Ein Vater groß und gut!”

(G.F. Stäudlin in Bergknappenlied)

Interdite …


“Wie mancher nähret sich von nicht erlaubten Sachen;
das Männchen weiß sich groß in seinem Staat zu machen.”

Memories in the shower room


“She said, “Would you like to take a shower?
I’ll show you up to the door”
I said, “Oh, no! no!
I’ve been through this before”
I knew I had to split
But I didn’t know how …”

(Bob Dylan in Motorpsycho nightmare)
