A poetic performance about loneliness in old age.
For lack of time, in the name of progress and of the rapid evolution of society, the elderly are being forgotten, sometimes even abandoned by friends and family.
Gone are their successes, their conquests, their dedication to work over the years and they are simply ALONE.
They wandering through the city waiting for a change, for something to happen or just for time to pass by.
Alone. At a bench. In the emptiness of a day…
Thus was born “SÓMENTE”…
The bench has a second goal in this project, before and after the piece it works as an installation that can be kept in the festival grounds.
