Under the sign of Reunion

The 55th Sintra Festival, under the sign of “Reunion”, gains a special symbolism and meaning.

Not only because of the context in which we live, which has made our certainties and what we took for granted waver, forcing us to confront, eye to eye, the immensity of our smallness and the gigantism of our vulnerabilities.

Because Art celebrates life

Fernando Pessoa wrote: “... there is art, because life is not enough...”. This sentence, widely used by the Brazilian poet Ferreira Gullar, is even more meaningful now with all the restrictions on  conviviality and socialisation. Online art, music, creativity, humour and imagination have allowed millions of people to handle the 2019-2021 pandemic since one cannot survive without expressing one’s thoughts through aesthetic and symbolic constructions.
