Facilitator's Invitation

Interstellar Night

Facilitator: Micah Swabb

Micah’s live dj set for this Friday night AMC dance will explore the theme of interstellar and inter-dimensional travel through the portal of dying, and through the portal of distorted perceptions caused by fear, doubt, and rage. It will resolve itself into a space where surrender, grief and courage can take root, before taking flight.

The intention for this dance is inspired by the poem “Do not go gentle into the night.” It has been referenced in many Hollywood films, perhaps most notably in the blockbuster movie “Interstellar.” It was written by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas in 1947 while he and his family witnessed the gradual passing of his father in Florence, Italy.

Do not go gentle into that good night
By Dylan Thomas

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
