Why are we speaking? To whom are we speaking? About whom are we speaking? How are we speaking? From what place are we speaking? Clarice Lispector, Brazilian writer, in ‘The Passion According GH’, says: “The world would not only frighten me if I became the world. If I’m the world, I will not be afraid. If we are the world, we are moved by a delicate radar that guides us.” How do we become worlds? How can we be guided by a delicate radar and, on this specific and unique place that is the stage, create a world? A world overwhelmed by ghastly images, by luminous images, crossed by a multitude of unanswered questions and torn by contrasts and paradoxes. A world of fury.
