It is always before the great moment when the action takes place that we experience the greatest peak of adrenaline. It is the moment when we revisit responsibility and its apparent weight, a sign that something is going to change without the shadow of a doubt.
First flight of a professional moment, first idea to be launched, first breath of life, first touch on the skin of a newborn baby.
This month we’ll talk about first flights. The flights that change us inside, that move institutions, that touch us and transform us, the flights that can save someone.
Flights that, through music, dance, and theatre, take place on stage and make us fly to another dimension. Let's contradict what we saw in the Cultural Soiree, that kept the population away from art and forced them to live in a monotonous way.
There are flights that even before being materialised they are built in our dreams. Flights that come across and get mixed up with what is in our imagination, but that we quickly want to make real.
Regarding first flights, the month of April began with Futurália, the fair where young people get advice on the best way to launch their career, or the best school to prepare them for the future.
In the month that celebrates their departure, in this edition we have also chosen, for the section Um Livro, Uma História (One Book, One Story), one of the most emblematic works by Karin Boye.
