Putting it together (sobre hacer teatro)


En el manual del maestro Alonso Alegría encontré la letra de esta música que de muchas maneras expresa lo que es hacer teatro. Usualmente no cuelgo videos en el blog (¿existirá una palabra para eso? ¿”yutuviar”?) pero creo que vale la pena.

 

Aquí va la letra (iba a subrayar las partes que más me gustaban, pero me di cuenta que sería casi todo):

Bit by bit

putting it together…

Piece by piece—

Only way to make a work of art

Every moment makes a contribution,

Every little detail plays a parts.

Having just a vision’s no solution,

Everything depends on execution

Putting it together—

That’s what counts

Ounce by ounce!

Putting in together—

Small amounts

Adding up to make a work of art.

First of all you need a good foundation,

Otherwise it’s risky from the start.

Having just a vision’s no solution,

Everything depends on execution.

The art of making art

Putting it together

bit by bit…

Link by link,

Dot by dot,

Building up the image,

Shot by shot,

Piece by piece.

Working out the vision night and day.

All it takes is time and perseverance,

With a little luck along the way,

Everything depends on preparation—

Even if you do have the suspicion

That it’s taking all your concentration—

The art of making art

Is putting it together—

Bit by bit—

Link by link—

And that

Is the state

Of the

Art!
