ELINA LOWENSOHN




Name: Elina Lowensohn
Date of Birth: Monday, July 11 1966
Born: Bucharest (Romania)
Nationality: Romania
Family:
Brother - Emile Lowensohn,
Father - minister of housing in Ceausescu government in Romania, concentration camp
survivor, in died 1973
Mother - defected to US in 1979

Significant Others: Husband Philippe Richard. French
Education: New York University, New York; New York Theater


Biography

With an exotic, dark appearance and an Eastern European mystery, Elina Lowensohn, a rising actress in mostly independent films, is a performer considered to have the kind of expressive looks that would have played well in silent movies. Filmgoers will long remember her performance as a Jewish architect shot by Ralph Fiennes simply because she knows how to construct a building's foundation in Steven Spielberg's "Schindler's List" (1993). Lowensohn's own background included both concentration camp victims and survivors. Her grandparents died in the cattle cars on the way to camps, while her father survived them. He went on to become minister of housing in the Romanian Communist government until purged because he was a Jew; he died in 1973 when Lowensohn was seven. Her mother, a ballet dancer and teacher, left Lowensohn and her younger brother in Romania while she traveled to South America to work, before settling in Washington, DC, where she obtained a green card and staged a year-long protest (including a hunger strike) until the US State Department allowed her children to emigrate to the US. The family settled in upstate New York.

After studying at New York University, Lowensohn began an association with stage director Travis Preston. She appeared in his productions of "Hamlet" (as Ophelia), "Last American in Paris", "The Ghost Sonata", "Twelfth Night" and "Roberto Zuccho". Film director Hal Hartley, a college classmate of Preston's, hired Lowensohn for his short film "Theory of Achievement" in 1991. Their association, which Lowensohn has described as "an artistic connection", has included "Simple Men" (1992), in which she was an epileptic anarchist, "Amateur" (1994), in which she plays a once notorious porn star, and "Flirt" (scheduled for release in 1996), in which she plays a nurse in a segment set in Berlin. Lowensohn has also established a working relationship with director Michael Almereyda. She was featured in his hour-long "Another Girl, Another Planet" (1992), which was shot in Pixelvision, and played the eponymous heroine of "Nadja" (1994), a femme fatale vampire loose in NYC. Lowensohn appears in Julian Schnabel's biopic of the artist "Basquiat" and plays a supporting role in Herb Gardner's "I'm Not Rappaport" (both 1996).

In a memorable 1994 episode of the NBC sitcom "Seinfeld", Lowensohn appeared as a Romanian gymnast. Her first significant TV-movie was "My Antonia," (USA), based on the Willa Cather novel, in which she plays a Bohemian immigrant teenager who brings spirit back into Neil Patrick Harris' sullen life.

EDGAR ALAN POE

Edgar Alan Poe

Tak... Zapewne Edgar Poe nie był postacią banalną ani szablonową. Był nie tyle poetą i pisarzem co marzycielem i wizjonerem, którego sny nigdy nie zostaną zapomniane. Nie doceniony za życia geniusz o niesamowicie fascynującej biografii.

"Od najwcześniejszych godzin dzieciństwa nie byłem taki jak inni
Nie postrzegałem świata jak inni
Nie potrafiłem zafascynować się rzeczami banalnymi
I z tego źródła wypłynął mój smutek
Nie mogłem pobudzić mojego serca, żeby się dostroiło
A wszystko co kochałem - kochałem w samotności"

(fragment wiersza E.A.Poe "Alone" - "Samotny")


SEN
"All we see or seem is but a dream within the dream"
(Edgar Alan Poe)

Sen o Wielkiej Rybie




" ... A dirge for her, the doubly dead.
In that she died so young ...".
"LENORE" Edgar Alan Poe 1831

KRUK


THE CROW

„Niegdyś wierzono, że gdy umiera człowiek, Kruk zabiera jego duszę do Krainy Zmarłych. Bywa jednak, że wraz z nią zostaje zabrany okropny smutek i dusza nie może zaznać spokoju. Tylko czasami udaje się Krukowi przywołać duszę z powrotem, żeby wszystko naprawić...”






Artist: Jane Siberry Lyrics
Song: It Can't Rain All the Time Lyrics

[SPOKEN:]
We walked the narrow path,
beneath the smoking skies.
Sometimes you can barely tell the difference
between darkness and light.
Do you have faith
in what we believe?
The truest test is when we cannot,
when we cannot see.

[SUNG:]
I hear pounding feet in the,
in the streets below, and the,
and the women crying and the,
and the children know that there,
that there's something wrong,
and it's hard to belive that love will prevail.

Oh it won't rain all the time.
The sky won't fall forever.
And though the night seems long,
your tears won't fall forever.

Oh, when I'm lonely,
I lie awake at night
and I wish you were here.
I miss you.
Can you tell me
is there something more to belive in?
Or is this all there is?

In the pounding feet, in the,
In the streets below, and the,
And the window breaks and,
And a woman falls, there's,
There's something wrong, it's,
It's so hard to belive that love will prevail.

Oh it won't rain all the time.
The sky won't fall forever.
And though the night seems long,
your tears won't fall, your tears won't fall, your tears won't fall
forever.

Last night I had a dream.
You came into my room,
you took me into your arms.
Whispering and kissing me,
and telling me to still belive.
But then the emptiness of a burning sea against which we see
our darkest of sadness.

Until I felt safe and warm.
I fell asleep in your arms.
When I awoke I cried again for you were gone.
Oh, can you hear me?

It won't rain all the time.
The sky won't fall forever.
And though the night seems long,
your tears won't fall forever.
It won't rain all the time
The sky won't fall forever.
And though the night seems long,
your tears won't fall, your tears won't fall,
your tears won't fall
forever.

"Enjoy the Silence"



"Bouncing off Clouds"



"strange little girl"



"A sorta Fairytale"



"1000 Oceans"



"Sweet The Sting"

"Lady łazarz" Sylwia Plath

Umieranie
jest sztuką, jak wszystko
Robię to doskonale.
Robię to tak, że okropnie boli.
Tak, że staje się prawdziwe.
Możesz uznać, że mam talent.
"Ukraińska nostalgia nocna"

Tęsknoty moje bywają nie z tego świata
koń cwałujący wśród stepu.
Na wzgórzu ponad miastem czerwone wieże
zamku, którego już nie ma.
Księżyc i Ty.

a może przyjdziesz dzisiaj
odwiedzić mnie w moim
zmęczonym śnie?
usiądziesz na chwilę i pogłaszczesz po włosach
tyle tylko...

Natalie Merchant / Carnival




Carnival

I've walked these streets
a virtual stage
it seemed to me
make up on their faces
actors took their
places next to me

I've walked these streets
in a carnival
of sights to see
all the cheap thrill seekers
the vendors and the dealers
they crowded around me

have I been blind
have I been lost
inside my self and
my own mind
hypnotized
mesmerized
by what my eyes have seen?

I've walked these streets
in a spectacle of wealth and poverty
in the diamond markets
the scarlet welcome carpet
that they just rolled out for me

I've walked these streets
in the mad house asylum
they can be
where a wild eyed misfit prophet
on a traffic island stopped
and he raved of saving me

have I been blind
have I been lost
inside my self and
my own mind
hypnotized
mesmerized
by what my eyes have seen?

have I been wrong
have I been wise
to shut my eyes
and play along
hypnotized
paralyzed
by what my eyes have found
by what my eyes have seen
what they have seen?

have I been blind
have I been lost
inside my self and
my own mind
hypnotized
mesmerized
by what my eyes have found
in that great street carnival
in that carnival?


My Skin



My skin
Take a look at my body
Look at my hands
There's so much here that I don't understand
Your face-saving promises
Whispered like prayers
I don't need them
'Cause I've been treated so wrong,
I've been treated so long
As if I'm becoming untouchable
Well, contempt loves the silence, it thrives in the dark
With fine winding tendrils that strangle the heart
They say that promises sweeten the blow
But I don't need them, no I don't need them
I've been treated so wrong,
I've been treated so long
As if I'm becoming untouchable
I'm a slow-dying flower
In the frost-killing hour
Sweet turning sour and untouchable
I need the darkness, the sweetness, the sadness, the weakness
Oh I need this
I need a lullaby, a kiss goodnight, angel, sweet love of my life
Oh I need this
I'm a slow-dying flower
Frost-killing hour
The sweet turning sour and untouchable
Do you remember the way that you touched me before
All the trembling sweetness I loved and adored
Your face-saving promises
Whispered liked prayers
I don't need them
I need the darkness, the sweetness, the sadness, the weakness
Oh, I need this
I need a lullaby, a kiss goodnight, angel, sweet love of my life
Oh, I need this
Well is it dark enough
Can you see me
Do you want me
Can you reach me
Oh, I'm leaving
Better shut your mouth, and hold your breath
You kiss me now, you catch your death
Oh, I mean this
Oh, I mean this
SADE "By your side"




By your side

you think i'd leave your side baby

and if you want to cry
i am here to dry your eyes
and in no time
you'll be fine

DIVE: CAPTAIN NEMO



Captain Nemo

Under the surface so crystal clear
Everyone was really tense
Waiting down there
He had his own world just like I had mine
We'll go seperate ways 'til the next time
There are no words to say
As my friend swims away

Refrain:
Captain Nemo said, "Okay"
(Five, four, three, two, one)
Then I raised my hand and waved
Captain Nemo went away
(Love me when I'm gone)
Left me all alone, Nemo's going home

And as I watched him, police boats approached
An alien force haunting us like ghosts
"Wish I could stay here and play for a while
But I must be on my way ..."
The warmest of smiles
Then he dived into the waves
Among the other whales

Refrain (4x)
DEINE LAKAIEN

"Into my arms" Oryginal version



"Into my arms"



Into my arms
My steps, within
Three feet, elsewhere
They say, don't dare
Don't leave that square
My will, there will
Can move, stand still
My part, no heart
I must fulfil

Like a rising monster
All veiled in grey
See the walls of dawn
They warn you of the day

Come back my dream
Into my arms into my arms
Come back my dream
Into my arms into my arms

Their will, my will
Just act, don't feel
Their kind, my kind
Brought me to heel
Accused of something
Nothing, all alone
I had to bang the nails
Into my head, the guilty one

Like a rising monster
All veiled in grey
See the walls of dawn
They warn you of the day

Come back my dreams ...


LOVE ME TO THE END - LIVE



Love me to the end

Waiting for the dawn
Waiting for the night
Waiting for the dawn
Waiting for the night
The day's too long
The day's too bright
The day's too long
The day's too bright
Love me,
love me to the end

This man pursues
A dagger in his hands
This man pursues
A dagger in his hands
Yet he will never
Get into our land
Yet he will never
Get into our land
Love me,
love me to the end

Fall down by my side
Down in my arms
Fall down by my side
Down in my arms
This night forever
No morning will come
This night forever
No morning will come
Love me,
Love me to the end
Love me,
Love me to the end
Love me, love me...

Love me to the end
Phantom of The Opera



Anggun - Snow on the Sahara

Only tell me that you still want me here
When you wander off out there
To those hills of dust and hard winds that blow
In the dry white ocean alone

Lost out in the desert
You are lost out in the desert

But to stand with you in a ring of fire
I'll forget the days gone by
I'll protect your body and guard your soul
From mirages in your sight

Lost out in the desert
You are lost out in the desert

If your hopes scatter like the dust across your track
I'll be the moon that shines on your path
The sun may blind our eyes, I'll pray the skies above
For snow to fall on the Sahara

If that's the only place where you can leave your doubts
I'll hold you up and be your way out
And if we burn away, I'll pray the skies above
For snow to fall on the Sahara

Just a wish and I will cover your shoulders
With veils of silk and gold
When the shadows come and darken your heart
Leaving you regrets so cold

Lost out in the desert
You are lost out in the desert

If your hopes scatter like the dust across your track
I'll be the moon that shines on your path
The sun may blind our eyes, I'll pray the skies above
For snow to fall on the Sahara

If your hopes scatter like the dust across your track
I'll be the moon that shines on your path
The sun may blind our eyes, I'll pray the skies above
For snow to fall on the Sahara

If that's the only place where you can leave your doubts
I'll hold you up and be your way out
And if we burn away, I'll pray the skies above
For snow to fall on the Sahara

Oh-oh-oh .... oh-oh-oh ....
For snow to fall on the Sahara
Oh-oh-oh .... oh-oh-oh ....
For snow to fall on the Sahara

You Want to Make a Memory










(You want to) Make a memory

Hello again, it's you and me
Kinda always like it used to be
Sippin' wine, killing time
Trying to solve life's mysteries

How's your life, it's been a while
God it's good to see you smile
I see you reaching for your keys
Looking for a reason not to leave

If you don't know if you should stay
If you don't say what's on your mind
Baby just breathe
There's nowhere else tonight we should be

You wanna make a memory?

I dug up this old photograph
Look at all that hair we had.
It's bittersweet to hear you laugh
Your phone is ringing I don't wanna ask

If you go now, I'll understand
If you stay, hey, I've got a plan
We're gonna make a memory
You wanna steal a piece of time
You can sing the melody to me
And I can write a couple of lines

You wanna make a memory?

If you don't know if you should stay
And you don't say what's on your mind
Baby just breathe
There's nowhere else tonight we should be
We Should be

You wanna make a memory
You wanna steal a piece of time
You can sing the melody to me
And I can write a couple of lines

You wanna make a memory? (x2)
