"I had the unique privilege and profound joy to witness the birth of Ghost, a solo of Luis Marrafa. Memories of his father's death were a starting point, but the result became so much more than telling or showing a personal anecdote. 

 

Ghost touches sentiments that fuck up our minds. It's what a human body together with the music of Bach sometimes is able to do: to express those feelings we cannot describe with words and thus the body starts to move. 

 

During the trip I wondered if his father was there with or amongst us ... for real? Or ... are sons just becoming their fathers?"
