Is this why, today, dreams appear as a declining commodity? Is the current mood only the effect of reality, the attempt to force fiction to fit in with the facts, with the right thinking, and with fashionable stereotypes? We cannot, we do not want to believe it.
Dreams and the imaginary are our compasses. As dreamers, we will be active, just as the festival’s performances enjoin us. The artists’ desire is to lead us into a space where meaning is not restricted to the constraints of rationality. In these troubled times, dreams are not refuges, they are essential.
