Blue Scarf Collective Presents Gala Dali at Home Resource, Sarasota 11/28/11


The irreverent artist, Salvador Dali, sizzled in his own right; but throw in the fire of his passionate wife and muse, Gala, and you can well understand how a clock could melt in their presence. (google: "The Persistence of Memory" by Dali)

In a powerful one act/one person play sponsored by Michael and Kathy Bush, owners of Home Resource, (a showroom of mouth watering contemporary furniture in Sarasota,) the Blue Scarf Collective of Tampa presented My Unspeakable Confessions: Gala Dali Declines to Explain Herself, beautifully written by Heather L. Jones, to sold out crowds on Nov. 25th and 28th.

This is Home Resource's first collaboration with the Dali Museum and Blue Scarf Collective. Looks like there may be a repeat January 2012 performance at HR, which I suggest you run out and see.

Roxanne Fay brilliantly played Gala, Salvador Dali's charismatic, devoted and headstrong seductress. Tarot cards, a favorite pastime of Gala's, were read, one by one, to cleverly introduce the chapters of Gala's personal story, an act of dramatic creation itself. The lady did as she pleased.

Through Ms. Fay's moving performance, we got up close and personal to Gala's all consuming love for Dali (and herself) and his equally intense connection to her. She wished to be everything to him: lover, wife, mother, collaborator and inspiration. We came to understand how this rapport completely defined each of them and allowed their creative and personal lives to flourish. Like a plant needs water, Gala told us that without the intensity of love, she was 'invisible"; a state simply unacceptable to her. (She seemed to have lots of attractive young men doing their best to help keep her visible.) ... http://srxq.blogspot.com/2011/11/gala-dali-at-home-resource-sarasota.html
