“You cannot describe it; you cannot picture it;

You cannot admire it; don’t try to eat it raw.

Your true self has nowhere to hide;

When the world is destroyed, it is not destroyed.”

from ‘Mumonkan’, case 23, translated by Katsuki Sekida (Weatherhill)

The world premiere of nowhere to hide took place at the The Listening Hour, University of Music of Stuttgart, Germany, on 15th April 2016 and was performed by Anna-Lea Rebholz.
