Simon Collings - Sanchez Ventura

Simon Collings
30 pages
We enter the dream world of Simon Collings’ Sanchez Ventura alert to hints of Bunuel, a touch of Borges, the cut-ups of the Cabaret Voltaire. Characters step into or out of paintings, watch themselves in movies, one may even be an ex-pat filmmaker. Sanchez Ventura himself is a gaucho, used-car salesman, waxwork model, writer, knave of hearts; he walks with a limp, he walks through sand, he walks through your dreams; he operates ‘on the frontier between slumber and waking’. Collings’ characters live in a restless search for identi-ty and meaning in this fabulous, allusive, labyrinth of myster-ies.
