DANCING WITH THE
GHOST OF MY CHILD
I invoke the spirit of my daughter. But she refused to leave his side. I will go to her one day.
Dancing with the Ghost of My Child is an aging man’s increasing desire and longing for an inspiration, for a life, for a child that he pains to father, and be a father to. In this dance, a man dreams of invoking the ghost of a child, his child, who has not yet been born into the world. This man lays his prayer across time and space. He prays for what love has yet to conceive. He hopes that if the ghost of his child is lost, the child may hear his voice, and find a path back to him. This dance leads the man to a moment in his life where perhaps he might begin to believe again.
