A Festa (da Insignificância)


The creative process is almost always distressing, but also joyful. We inevitably commemorate all our physical and mental possibilities. There’s always a commitment that transcends us. There’s always surprise and celebration. There’s always a ritual aspect that changes us, vivifies, modifies, brings us closer to the other. A Festa (da Insignificância) appears in order to embody the inner and secret motivations, the utopia, the expectation and the will to create a platform of understanding and complicity. And that is not limited to the enclosed space of the stage. It carries over to everyone present, either passive or active.
