Courtisane festival 2014
Glauber Rocha once recalled a Portuguese saying: We don’t know where we are going, but we know we can’t get there this way. Perhaps that is the choice we are trying to make: to leave the safe grounds and start trusting in what we see in front of us and behind us. To leave the categories pinpointing us to places that could be easily recognized and identified. To put our confidence in what resists us, what forces us to think anew. To realize what we have been sensing all along that there is something else at stake. To let go, slowly, of the certainties of knowing and accepting our place. To get lost.
Our ‘proposition’ is perhaps just this: to give you a few things to wonder about, things that make you want to wander. We do need to allow ourselves to dream, dream out loud, dream with our eyes open.
