For #Imagine2037, we commissioned eight artists, who are migrants living all over the world, to write about an imaginary performance taking place on a hilltop in the centre of Edinburgh 20 years from now in the year 2037. 'Closer' Gaël Cornec's piece for #Imagine2037 is about love, loss and the passage of time. If you walk to the top of Arthur's Seat, you’ll meet someone you’d never otherwise meet. A stranger. We both thought this moment would not exist, you and I. I erased a few words, a number of times. You hesitated a touch. Life is made of encounters in uncertain futures, of imagined romances, of déjà vus with saudades. It happens in a time that is waiting to be, in cities distant from ourselves that we know so well. Look around. Below the peak, the walls of the buildings remain the same while our faces crumble. Twenty years is a speck of dust in the history of everything yet an avalanche in our lives; it descends in roars not in sweet melodies. Time is a slap in the face, sudden, painful, memorable. And there is no other way than remembering. So look around. What do you see? I want it badly, what you carry in your eyes, what brings you closer to me. Make a souvenir of this soon-to-be-gone memory. A photo, a drawing, a sentence, or whatever way you have to outlive time, share it with me. Do not camouflage its reality with filter or subterfuge, rawness is sincere, then display it like we hang paintings on walls. Somewhere, somehow, I’ll see it. And whatever form you take, I’ll revisit the moment we met without meeting, we gazed without eyes, we loved each other without being. Gaël’s story: I am writer, actress and theatre director born in the Amazon in Brazil. My mother is of mixed African, indigenous and white heritage, my father is French. My fascination with theatre started as a child when reading plays at night with my parents. Strangely, I graduated in Biology but still went on to train in acting at The Grotowski Institute in Poland and the Meisner School of Acting in Los Angeles. I migrated to the UK 12 years ago, where I’ve been telling stories about identity, displacement and encounters.

Tim was feeling pretty under the weather in Edinburgh, but when I told him the sunset was going to look amazing from Arthur's Seat and that I was planning to eat my organic dark chocolate almond butter cup once I got to the top and that he could have the other since there were two, I didn't have to ask if he wanted to come 😂. In fact he beat me although I would've saved it for him anyway 🤣🤣. #ArthursSeat #Edinburgh #Scotland #UK #ShimsandTims timotxx
