“The Theatro Circo de Braga journey began more than a hundred years ago, when others had already dreamed of it. With it, the journeys multiplied. This and other dreams between fiction and reality have expanded over it. His gentle stops served to unveil the clairvoyance of a journey, provoking it, continuing it.
But the important thing about this project is not the path that leads to the point of arrival, but rather to continue to define a path in which time strikes and in which the movement is distinct.
Suspended between these two worlds of before and now, this story has been explored in a world of other worlds. A gateway to writings, books, sculptures, paintings, photographs, posters, drawings, voices.
Nothing happens in a darkroom, everything is brought to the light of the theatre. Even if crossing images, revealing forgotten stories, making known a place that is not new, but about a renewed look, that does not allow to be, after all, the return of oneself to its place. (…)”
