Seven rooms for the mirror dancer!
Seven rooms for his dance from a distant past into an equally gray future!
It is his ISLAND MUSEUM.
A museum, not just of his dreams, but of all his pathetic existential explanations and attempts at interpretation, his outlooks, distractions, seductions, his longings, his attempts to escape and his consolations.
Aren't they finally buried in this museum?
Will the mirror dancer finally become free and Zarathustra's equal?
Or does he just want to get an idea of all these big things he doesn't understand like
TIME, REALITY, DREAM, CULTURE, RELIGION and DEATH?
Meanwhile, he will continue to perform his ritual dances every day for which he is payed for.
The mirror held up as a protective mask where his counterpart always only sees his own projections.
