Treading the Abyss

Treading the Abyss
or
Six Twenty Seven PM

There’s a fog in your head when you tread through the abyss. There’s fog all around you.
And all the broken umbrellas in the street flapping in the wind are like dead birds.
The men who count suicides are liable to include themselves.
Loneliness is the colour of ash and feathers, and you know you have to go.
It’s almost 6.27 pm and the dark streets are filled with yellow lights and despair.
And the girl steps onto the highest roof in the city and looks down.
There’s nothing wrong with her. Nothing that a kiss couldn’t fix.

A theatre play written and directed by Joaquim Pedro Ferreira

 OpenPodium at AstaroTheatro
will not change the world of neoliberal crimes against humanity
and alone it’s only a tiny challenge to the hegemony of corporate mediocrity in the arts

 Yet OpenPodium at AstaroTheatro aims at making clear
that an alternative narrative is possible
A narrative not seen in the realm of money-making profit-oriented creativity
A narrative refreshing and powerful like a poem heard in the wind
A narrative of daily rebellion to advanced capitalism in all human activities
A narrative of resistance to pornification of life as a commodity
A narrative of independence

So let’s be clear:
this is an open call, an invitation to you
OpenPodium at AstaroTheatro
Urgent Rebellion
will be pleased to welcome you
