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 sunlight, burnt,
speaking of the absence of water.
It is a tale about our connection to earth.
It talks about our wish to fall and our longing to fly.
