Notes on this piece
The Theia and Gaia theory is the history of the formation of our planet and its satellite. According to the Greeks, these two planets collapsed half a billion years ago, when the solar system was still "fragile" and volatile, giving rise to what we now know as the earth and its moon. The impact was chaotic, resulting in a liquid ball of fire and energy of more than nearly 300 teratons of TNT.
It is believed therefore, that Theia was eaten by Gaia and that the now earth carries this planet disappeared in its entrails. Poetically, every human has a Theia inside him, as she gave her existence to catapult creation.
Despite many contradictions and unproven elements, this theory still circulates today and is even accepted by many astrophysicists, who call it "the big impact theory" or "the big splash theory".
The exerting forces of Theia and Gaia is the reflection of the volatility of the environment and its incessant transformation in opposition to the thousands and varied explosions of creation. Passivity against sudden aggressiveness, the infinite against the ephemeral, the distant against the incisive, the whole against the moment. It also deals with the forces of attraction, and the need for dialogue and complement. At the same time, the theory could be a metaphor for the contradictions, for the necessary obstacles that we constantly face
but that enrich our experiences and nurture our future decisions.
The complete and final version of The exerting forces of Theia and Gaia was virtually premiered on August 31st of 2021, by Versus 8 Percussion ensemble
whom also commissioned the piece.
