The Future

Event details – exact title, brief synopsis:

A play reading of ‘The Future’ by Helena Tornero, translated by Helena Buffery.

"To put oneself into the place of the other, that is the question. To find a place, a person, a group of people that you can call “home”. A place where the great adventure is not to conquer, but to co-habit, where the heroes are not conquerors, but carers. A place where more than words we find actions. Kind actions.

A place where the great adventure is to know the other."
