Performing Arts Festival


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


A sigh. An outburst. A sharing in an audible voice, of current thoughts.


A relationship at a distance. The day-to-day in absence. The waiting for a return, infinitely long.


The waiting for life, complete, not just suspended.
