International Solo Festival

Erm

Cine-Teatro Garrett, Sala de Ensaios (Rehearsal Room)

Synopsis

"Erm". A look at human disaster and a body that expands in search of balance.

"And yet, in the humility of disaster, a new flower bursts forth-new. Like the first flower in the wind upon the face of the earth. For we are alive, and all greatness thus holds for us. We are alive, we know it. The torch of light that projects from us, returns to us and illuminates - illuminates what we do not wish to destroy."
Vergílio Ferreira

"I told woman we should sing. And they said 'You are crazy, we are at war'. And I said that is exactly why we should sing."
Raja Banout

"Nothing but death and asphalt for miles."
Naomi Klein

"Touching that earth, I thought: she is also in me. We are both part of the same planet. We live the same story."
Sebastião Salgado
