"FALLEN MONSTERS celebrates the resiliency of the Creative Spirit to survive
onslaughts of trauma and other attempts to oppress its joy of expression.
William Blake's life, his visionary art, and his poems (sung by Sylvi Alli)
inspired the creation of rituals to explore and embody these processes."
- Antero Alli, director

The Angel

I dreamt a dream!  What can it mean? And that I was a maiden Queen
Guarded by an Angel mild: Witless woe was ne’er beguiled!
And I wept both night and day, And he wiped my tears away;
And I wept both day and night, And hid from him my heart’s delight.
So he took his wings, and fled; Then the morn blushed rosy red.
I dried my tears, and armed my fears with ten thousand shields and spears.
Soon my Angel came again; I was armed, he came in vain;
For the time of youth was fled, and grey hairs were on my head.

William Blake
