We were married on a rainy day, isn’t that how the song goes?
I wore black jeans and codeine,
I guess I wanted to make sure I seemed “relaxed”.

“It’s just for contractual reasons”, I explained, signing the papers,
as if I truly believed that a contract was further from the institution
than the industrial happiness complex.

In the year of love I signed a deal with patriarchy.
Now watch me step into the place where you can see me: Look at me.
You think I’m different but I’m a stagehand.
Look, it’s there, under the ring, the imprint on my skin.

A year later I’m on stage when a man proposes to a woman right in front of me,
in the middle of a song I thought I knew what was about.

I am holding a disco flashlight.
It is meant to make the audience feel like multitudes of colours
that belong to nobody in particular, that they share between their bodies,
but now all it does is light up a proposal, a normcore institution.
I am giving it my voice, but then again, I already did.

In the year of love I did what I never thought I would,
and you may think I’m different, but listen,
all contracts can be sung with my voice,
I’m just a stagehand.
Look, it’s there, under the ring, the imprint on my skin.

KV 581

On Tuesday, December 28, 2021, violist Amihai Grosz and his friends from Berlin shone in a musical spectacle of the highest level during the International Chamber Music Festival Utrecht. Due to the lockdown, the original program of this edition of the IKFU (Dec 27 - Dec 30, 2021) unfortunately had to be cancelled. However, the organizers and musicians did not give up and realized a beautiful concert via a live stream.
