Because art is different



Once upon a time I went to a poetry festival. Artists from Sweden, Denmark, Spain and Lithuania sang poetry. During 2 hours I was able to experience a variety of feelings..... I felt bored, asleep, awake, excited, happy.... I wanted to dance, to sing along, to belong, to leave. During this 2 hours I had time to think about art and wonder why it is so important for us, FOR ME. During this 2 hours, I was able to forget my own existence and let myself be involved by the lyrics, the rhythm, the energy. Ironically, stop thinking about myself made me so deeply involved with my own being! Art promotes a space for reflection, reflection about the world we live in, and above all, about myself living in this world.


A praia/ The beach

Quando o sol dorme, a lua e as estrelinhas vêm pra fechar a praia.

When the sun sleeps, the moon and the little stars come to close the beach.
