Swallows comes to us in springtime, passing through all the other seasons. It is a text about freedom, about sensations and about memories - the ones we have and the ones we are yet to create. Season by season; sensation by sensation; memory by memory, we build a narrative as if it were a nest on the roof. In that nest live - sometimes - free swallows, ready to fly and discover everything the world has to offer. It's about being a child and giving value to the little things; giving focus to the small discoveries; respecting any opinion and direction of the wind. "Swallows" takes us from the warmth and comfort of summer to the naïve spring. A set of recorded memories of children that translate into a naive journey on the wings of a swallow in its migratory cycle.

Swallows is an action inserted in the project HÁ CULTURA | CULTURE FOR ALL promoted by the Municipality of Vila Nova de Famalicão and co-financed by NORTE 2020, through the European Social Fund (ESF).
