International Solo Festival


Cine-Teatro Garrett, outdoor space (at the entrance)


Dust. An attic with dust. Closets with dust, chests with dust. Books and albums buried in dust. Jewelry boxes with dust. Dresses with dust. Beautiful, old dresses. Mother's, aunts', grandmothers' dresses. And who says dresses, says shoes. And he says jewelry. Earrings. Rings. Necklaces. Beautiful necklaces. Necklaces already forgotten in the dust. Necklaces with memories. So many memories. From the mother. From aunts. From grandmothers. Of the pearl necklaces Mom wore on Sunday, of Grandma's cameo. Of watching him swing on her chest before I closed my eyes and fell asleep with his lullaby...

Dust, memories, and a smile. Of yesteryear.
