MESSIER DOESN’T SEW : HE RESUSCITATES OLD SINGERS PUT ASLEEP YEARS AGO IN ORDER TO RELEASE, IN SOME MAGICAL WAYS, THE LUMINOUS AND SONOROUS PRESENCE OF THE PAST. HE CARRIES HIS PUBLIC IN A DREAMLIKE UNIVERSE WHERE EACH MACHINE, AS SINGULAR SUBJECT, IS MAGNIFIED. AFTER YEARS OF SILENCE, SEWING MACHINE ORCHESTRA IS GIVING SPEECH TO THESE SURVIVING OBJECTS OF THE INDUSTRIAL ERA.
THIS CREATION WAS MADE POSSIBLE WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE CANADA COUNCIL FOR THE ARTS.

On Thoughts is a picture book and animated short film illustrated by a poem. A collaboration of images by Andre da Loba and words by Emilio Remelhe, On Thoughts takes its audience on a coming of age journey through transformative moments lived, lost, found and yet to come. What happens when inspiration takes flight and leaves you behind? You catch-up and exceed its expectations. On Thoughts is an ambitious and contemplative play on words set in acts of color and courage.
