"Harry Potter And The Cursed Child" Will Be A Two Part Sequel

The official synopsis for the highly anticipated stage play "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" has been dropped and it was announced that the story is expected to occur 19 years after the final book. 





Here is the plot: "It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places."


"Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" is set to be told in two parts and both plays can be watched in one day or on consecutive nights. 





30 actors are going to star in the production and casting will be revealed at a later date.



The play will make its debut in London in summer 2016 and tickets go on sale next week.

Marina Abramovic Quotes

1. The hardest thing is to do something which is close to nothing because it is demanding all of you.


2. I test the limits of myself in order to transform myself, but I also take the energy from the audience and transform it. It goes back to them in a different way. This is why people in the audience often cry or become angry or whatever. A powerful performance will transform everyone in the room.


3. To me the pain and the blood are merely means of artistic expression.




4. I am obsessive always, even as a child. On one side is this strict orthodox religion, on the other is communism, and I am this little girl pulled between the two. It makes me who I am. It turns me into the kind of person that Freud would have a field day with, for sure.


5. A bath is the only way to relax in this crazy city.



6. When people ask me where I am from, I never say Serbia. I always say I come from a country that no longer exists.

7. The brother of my grandfather was the patriarch of the Orthodox Church and revered as a saint. So everything in my childhood is about total sacrifice, whether to religion or to communism. This is what is engraved on me. This is why I have this insane willpower. My body is now beginning to be falling apart, but I will do it to the end. I don't care. With me it is about whatever it takes.


8. I gazed into the eyes of many people who were carrying such pain inside that I could immediately see it and feel it. I become a mirror for them of their own emotions. One big Hell's Angel with tattoos everywhere stared at me fiercely, but after 10 minutes was collapsing into tears and weeping like a baby.



9. I made a tape recording of a bridge collapsing and I wanted to play it suddenly and very loudly when people were walking over a big bridge in Belgrade. The council forbid it. Their imagination is tiny; mine is big. I want always to shake everything up.


10. Through performance, I found the possibility of establishing a dialogue with the audience through an exchange of energy, which tended to transform the energy itself. I could not produce a single work without the presence of the audience, because the audience gave me the energy to be able, through a specific action, to assimilate it and return it, to create a genuine field of energy.

11. I heard about Beuys later and then the others. I was incredibly naive and innocent. I mean, even when I am 23 and I have started with the blood and cutting, I still have to be back home by 10.30pm every night or my mother would be ringing the police to say I am missing.


12. The others in line grew angry and aggressive, but then they realized that the waiting was also part of the performance.


13. Even now, I have traces of the good little girl. When I am not performing, for instance, I am really very quiet and ordinary. I don't drink or smoke and I have never taken drugs. I am probably, the most boring person you could meet.




14. If we go for the easy way, then we never change.

15. It was an enormous amount of liquid he was carrying inside. I am almost certain he was a performance artist.

16. I burnt off my hair. In the morning, my grandmother see me and drop the breakfast tray on the floor and start to shriek like a cat who has seen the devil. Did it make her think twice about her calling? No. It made me angry that I had not completed the performance.


17. I started realizing I could use any material I want, fire, water, and the body. The moment when I started using the body, it was such an enormous satisfaction that I had and that I can communicate with the public that I could never do anything else. I could never go back to the seclusion of the studio and be protected by the space there. The only way of expression is to perform.

18. Oh, it's plain to me that this is something incredible. I give people a space to simply sit in silence and communicate with me deeply but non-verbally. I did almost nothing, but they take this religious experience from it. Art had lost that power, but for a while Moma was like Lourdes.

19. I don't believe in these performance revivals. They don't have the ring of truth about them.



20. I hate kitchens. I don't understand these enormous American kitchens that take up half the living room and then they just order pizza.


21. Madonna takes so much from art and performance and never mentions it; Gaga is more generous.



22. When I am performing a piece, anything that happens in that moment is part of the piece.

23. I didn't even know it was Isabella Rossellini. I kept thinking: "She looks familiar." I didn't even recognize Sharon Stone. I was in another zone."


24. When Riccardo and I met, I felt like we had the same tastes. I really love fashion, and he really loves art. For me, having Riccardo is like finding your identity.


25. We are always in the space in-between…all the spaces where you are not actually at home. You haven't arrived yet…This is where our mind is the most open. We are alert, we are sensitive, and destiny can happen. We do not have any barriers and we are vulnerable. Vulnerability is important. It means we are completely alive and this is an extremely important space. This is for me the space from which my work generates.

26. Physically, mentally, I have to prepare myself for a feat of endurance. I became a vegetarian, I did deep meditation, I cleansed myself. I train the body and the mind. I learn to eat certain foods so that I don't have to go to the toilet for seven hours. I learn to sleep in short bursts at night. This is very hard: sleep, wake, drink, pee, exercise, sleep, wake and on and on. So even the not-performing is intense.

27. I believe the highest form of art is music and then performance is the second highest because it's mostly immaterial. Immaterial art is the strongest because there's no obstacle (between viewer and performer); there's just energy, and I believe in energy.


28. I hate studio. For me, studio is a trap to overproduce and repeat yourself. It is a habit that leads to art pollution. Nothing new happens. You don't surprise yourself. You don't put yourself in situations to risk.

29. I had so much fear of blood, and the first thing I did was cut myself to see what happens.  That's the only way to rebuild yourself.


30. Ideas can come anytime, anywhere, while I am making this gazpacho or going to the bathroom. I am only interested in the ideas that become obsessive and make me feel uneasy. The ideas that I'm afraid of.

31. People ask why there are so few female artists who succeed. It's because women are not ready to sacrifice as much as men. Women want a man, they want a family, they want to have children, they want to be loved, and to be an artist. And they can't; it's impossible.


32. When you have so much pain, you think you will lose consciousness. If you say to yourself: "So what, lose consciousness," the pain goes away.


33. Artists should never think of themselves as an idol. Fame is a side effect of one's work. I've put 40 years into this. Some young artists who are 25 (and become famous) overdose and die, but my success came so slow. So it does not really affect my ego because ego is a huge obstacle in art. If you think you're great, then something is seriously wrong with you.


34. If it was just for my own self-realization, I would never have had this energy, but if I do it for the public, I can bring a higher motivation.


35. I hate people who steal your work…Get your own ideas. 





36. This larger-than-life thing is a dangerous state. Your ego can become an obstacle to your work. If you start believing in your greatness, it is the death of your creativity.

37. (on Lady Gaga) She openly says everything is influenced from art, and she's very generous. She came to MoMA, and we had an enormous amount of people watching who were 14 and 15 years old. So she created this situation where I got this new public.


38. It is a mental and physical construction in which the artist steps from low self to high self in front of the public or from the ordinary self to a different kind of zone and higher state of mind.


39. I'm just there, being in the present, which is very hard to do because your mind always escapes somewhere. But you have to train it not to go anywhere else.

40. Being an artist, especially in the '70s, you had to hate fashion because you'd never be taken seriously. And then that slowly started to change.


41. I'm always like: "Oh, my God, what am I going to wear?"



42. (on her friend Cindy Sherman) She is so fashionable; she always has the right thing. I love it.

43. I love fashion. In the 1970s, that made you a bad artist.


44. I just wanted it to be cozy because it was very cold there.


45. The public is in need of experiences that are not just voyeuristic. Our society is in a mess of losing its spiritual centre. The function of the artist in a disturbed society is to give awareness of the universe, to ask the right questions, and to elevate the mind.

46. In the performer's body, you don't care how you look. It doesn't matter if you're old, fat, beautiful, or ugly. It doesn't change anything. The only thing (that matters) is your charisma and how you express your idea.


47. I still don't have a complete image of what happened to me, but I am different in so many ways.





48. I notice if I'm too fat or if I'm too ugly or there's skin hanging or whatever. When my clothes start not fitting, I get really self-conscious about what I eat.

49. I never hang anything on the walls. There is never any art because I'm making art. I don't want to see it because then I'll never have a new idea. I try to start from the whiteness and manifest something after that.


50. Marco is the photographer, but I am the author of the work.




51. I wanted an image of the artist as survivor, looking into the future.

52. I estimate I have 10 years to establish my institute, to create my legacy and do all these things I want to do before I get too old to move.


53. Performance is about the true reality.




54. Art can help so much in society because we have lost our beliefs. There's no churches anymore, so we have to rebuild. I've always believed that why I'm here is for the big picture.

55. To be a performance artist, you have to hate theatre. Theatre is fake… The knife is not real, the blood is not real, and the emotions are not real. Performance is just the opposite: the knife is real, the blood is real, and the emotions are real.


56. The only theatre I do is my own. Somehow, my life is the only life that I can play.

57. I just want to create situations where people forget time.

58. I never saw so much pain. People are afraid to express their inner feelings, but when you go inside, you'll see it. People live in so much pain. I understand it.

Orlan Quotes

1. I almost died because I had an ectopic pregnancy. They had to operate to save my life and remove what they told me was a non-viable foetus.


2. This is my body, my software. (Madonna) said it was like caviar. She probably eats a lot of it, and knows what she's talking about.

3. Being a narcissist isn't easy when the question is not of loving your own image, but of recreating the self through deliberate acts of alienation.

4. I like body art, but it's not my thing. I am all for pleasure and sensuality, not for endurance and suffering.


5. I have given my body to art, for after my death it will not be given to science, but rather to a museum to be mummified: it will be the main part of a video installation. When the operations are finished, I will employ an advertising agency to find me a first and second name and an artist name, then I will get a lawyer to appeal to the Public Prosecutor to accept my new identities with my new face. This is a performance inscribed within the social fabric, a performance which goes as far as the law…as far as a complete change of identity. In any case, if it proves to be impossible the attempt and the lawyer's appeal will be a part of the work.

6. Religion is always against women, and Christian art wants us to not touch bodies, to choose between good and evil. But all my work is about good and evil. So for me God isn't a solution for my life, or for my work.



7. Do not misunderstand me too quickly.

8. I wasn't in pain and what was happening to my body was of profound interest to me. Pain is an anachronism. I have great confidence in morphine.

9. All my life I came second, as men were always coming first. Not to talk about feminism would mean that I didn't respect myself.


10. My work is a fight against nature and the idea of God...the inexorability of life, DNA-based representation. And that's why I went into cosmetic surgery; not looking to enhance or rejuvenate, but to create a total change of image and identity. I claim that I gave my body to art. The idea is to raise the issue of the body, its role in society and in future generations, via genetic engineering, to mentally prepare ourselves for this problem.

11. At the sight of the vulva, even the devil runs away.





12. For many years, I had appropriated baroque imagery in my work, especially in relation to Catholic art. So when I lay on the operating table, the parallels between the operating theatre and the Catholic mass were not wasted on me.

13. Surgery is something I haven't done for a long time. I have done sculptures, photographic works, installations, performances, biotechnology, but I always try to change materials and style to find the best solution.


14. For me, art which is interesting is related to and belongs to resistance. It must upset our assumptions, overwhelm our thoughts, be outside norms and outside of the law. It should be against bourgeois art; it is not there to comfort, nor to give us what we already know. It must take risks, at the risk of not being accepted, at least initially. It should be deviant and involve a project for society. And even if this declaration seems very romantic, I say: art can, art must, change the world, for that is its only justification.

15. Everyone is scared of genetic DIY. It's crucial for artists to work with such technologies. It is important that we work between science and art.


16. During surgery I read texts as long as possible, even while my face is being operated on. In the most recent operations this produced an image of a cadaver under autopsy which keeps on speaking, as if its words were detached from its body…During all my operation-performances I read the following extract from her book "La Robe" (The Dress) which says this: "The skin is deceptive...in life one only has one's skin…there is an error in human relations because one is never what one has…I have an angel's skin, but I am a jackal… a black skin but I am white, a woman's skin but I am a man; I never have the skin of what I am. There is no exception to the rule because I am never what I have…" When I read this text I thought about how, in our era, we are beginning to have the means of reducing this distance, specifically by surgery…It is now possible therefore to bring the internal image closer to the external image.

17. No, my goal was to be different, strong; to sculpt my own body to reinvent the self. It's all about being different and creating a clash with society because of that. I tried to use surgery not to better myself or become a younger version of myself, but to work on the concept of image and surgery the other way around. I was the first artist to do it.

18. Plastic surgery is one of the areas in which man's power can be most powerfully asserted on women's bodies. I was not able to obtain (collaboration) from male surgeons what I was able to achieve with a female surgeon, for I believe (the male surgeons) wanted to keep me "cute".

19. Everything takes a different flavour when a woman does it.

20. I am not sure I can change such a thing, but I can produce images that are different from those we find in comics, video games, magazines and TV shows. There are other ways to think about one's body and one's beauty. If you were to describe me without anyone being able to see me, they would think I am a monster, that I am not f.... But if they see me, that could perhaps change.


21. I say that I am involved in a woman-to-woman transsexual act, making allusion to transsexuals as, for example, a man who feels like a woman wants other people to see him as a woman. We could summarize this by saying that it is matter of communication.

22. The Ninth surgery will probably take place in Japan, to give me a very large nose, the biggest nose technically possible in relation to my anatomy and deontologically acceptable to a surgeon from that country. This operation will not take place for another three or four years (quote from 1996), perhaps even more, for it will take time to find the necessary technical and financial infra-structures to develop the overall project. But above all, the greatest danger I am taking is that this extremely radical and shocking performance will obscure the plastic art work which results from it. My current aim is also to produce and exhibit works from earlier operations, making clear the process whereby this performance is created and debating the questions which it raises with the widest possible public.
