eu so devedor à terra / I owe the earth
a terra me está devendo / the earth owes me
a terra paga-me em vida / the earth pays me while I am alive
eu pago à terra em morrendo / I pay the earth when I die
– Cante Alentejano –
IKARIA is a story that plays along the edge, between light and shadows. Walking a land bathed in intense light, burnt, speaking of the absence of water. It is a tale about our connection to the earth beneath our feet. It talks about our wish to fall and our longing to fly.
