Here is no water but only rock
Rock and no water and the sandy road……
If there were only water amongst the rock
Dead mountain mouth of carious teeth that cannot spit
Here one can neither stand nor lie nor sit
There is not even silence in the mountains
But dry sterile thunder without rain

A 20th century classic of music and film (dir. Godfrey Reggio) from the early 1980s, a cry of despair at climate change and man’s ruination of earth. A large screen will be erected in front of the altar of this high-ceilinged church. The film will be on a loop for audiences to choose their own time for a visit and from which to create their own fragmentary experience.
