Sílvia das Fadas

LIGHT, BLAZE, FULGOR - AUGURIES FOR A NON-HIERARCHICAL FRAMING AND FLOURISHING

Sílvia das Fadas - projected performance

Palácio Belomonte at 15th June, 6 p.m.

> entrance by Rua do Comércio nr. 173

Stubbornly looking at the ruins of a commune I search for augurs. For instance: “Fair weather

for drifters.” I wander by foot across times, erratically shooting images and recording sounds

through the kaleidoscopic spatiality of Alentejo, a Portuguese region named after a river,

beyond a river. As walking offers unexpected encounters and co-presences, missives are sent

to and from the margins. For instance: “growing organs for the alternative.” My senses are

partial, precarious and fragmentary, but not my orientation: There is an everyday struggle for

the fulgor being fought and I want to be in it. Against a firmament of dispossession of land,

bodies and social bonds, we are getting ready. For instance: “On the level!” The fulgor is

mobile, the prefigured community dispersed and diverse. Through dissent and associations

of affinity, autonomy and re-enchantment, the offer of cinema could be to let us flourish on

non-hierarchical frames.
