“Listening to the needs of other living beings,” is how we began our research journey.
In a place where few people still live, their stories remain in fragments. And their experiences, in a daily life where time is still time and remains latent. With our five senses awake and our hearts open, we felt, processed and transformed this short journey, in which each element was fundamental to artistic creation.
Where we sought healing, we found a profound humanity and generosity on the part of the people of the land and what remains of this nature that is still present.
Welcoming, listening and guiding are the new tools we take away from this whole process, always in dialog.
Very slowly, Sussurrandar…
