    The word Ballet is a French word adopted into the English language which was itself adopted from the Italian word Balletto which is a diminutive of the word ballo (simply meaning dance.) The Italian word ballo was naturally borrowed from the Latin ballare which means “to dance.” And finally, the Latin expression was adopted, naturally again, from the Greek ballizo with means “to dance” or “jump around.”

    The word Saboteur simply means “one who commits sabotage.” And that’s simple enough, but the expression Sabotage is defined as “a deliberate action aimed at weakening another entity though subversion, obstruction, or destruction.” And so the “ballet du saboteur” is effectively, and perhaps much too literally jumping around as an act of subversion, and I think that pretty well sums it up.

    As an antagonist, or provocateur, it’s my simple task to find a place to lay my hands flat against your resistance, and push. The obvious attempts are to speak categorically — always, never, you, and them — to become angry, and express my contempt, show my bias, illiterate my own faults as if I were a victim of injustice — to wail like the mothers of the disappeared — to call out for mercy, to weep toward the sky, to show my heartbreak to the blind world as an illustration of how dead inside we really are — and of course there is simple sarcasm, elitism, and fist fighting. But these approaches, however troubling or poignant, have failed to move the hearts and minds of the post-modernist head. And so I choose love, vulnerability, availability, accountability, rhythm, dance, and various paradoxes to weave tapestries of what I hope are our collective dilemma in the 21st century world and first express my own flawed thinking, sense of entitlement, lust, devotion, or simple hurt feelings and then turn them on you for your own consideration. The idea is not to invite you to empathize with me, nor to observe me and my art as if I were on display, but to engage you, to invite you to weave your own threads into this majestic brocade, to collaborate with me.

    Granted this tactic might be more successful in the traditional sense (cash and carry) if I were more of an obvious spectacle, or immediately accessible — it’s true, I have never been so successful as when I didn’t quite know what I Was talking about, but was very, very angry — an yet I insist that “house music,” this endless mosaic of belle ame electronique I have become devoted to is simply not for everyone. We are a strange family of hearts from the past and the future. I reach out immediately with my music, my movement, my whispering, my streams of sweet, bitter, and beautiful words to the people of the present tense. And in this way I stand up against you. I quietly, and sweetly oppose your cliché ideas about dancing, genre, beauty, and art, and care absolutely nothing for the refined but extremely limited taste of the trainspotter, the broad, but somehow monocular minds of the main and the mob and the masses, and say simply “here you are…” when I find you, and love you back with all of my heart. This music began in the basements of every city, and rose up as a voice of the mute, and the lost. We connected, and collected ourselves in the only places we could in order to orchestrate our own ballet and swirl, twirl, and give the illusion flight so profound, so magnificent that the world would converge in our house and ache to be marginalized, rejected, born with the wrong gender, and set so far aside that we all crashed into one another as we came home in our house. If this wasn’t sabotage then I have no other word to describe it.

    I have so much to say about all that I feel within myself, all that this world is constantly transmitting into my subconscious mind, but I’ve already said these things in my transmission and I hope that my diatribe, my monolog, my sweet whispering songs will pique your mind, and open your hearts as the beginning of your own thinking on the matter. I am by no means the last word in this discussion.

    I often wonder if Klaus-Peter Sabotta had joined forces with George Balanchine what magical love and delight might have surged out of these two passionate people’s hearts. Surely we might live in a world where truth, beauty, and protest overwhelmed the hearts of everyone, compelling them to do right by their inner truths, abandon their fears and insecurities, openly admit defeat, and the trains might still run on time.
