Ensueños #2

ENSUEÑOS is a visual and sound installation that invites you to enter an immersive sensory and emotional space, in a poetic journey, to look and listen about Nature. With this project, we invite to share the path of light and knowledge of women belonging to the communities of First Nations present from the South to the North of the Andes Cordillera in Argentina.

With their songs in their native languages, in dialogue with the birds and sounds of different territories, these women invite us to reconnect with the earth. In complementarity, the men accompany this journey with their instruments and their sounds. Exploring an imaginary path, the spectators vibrate the ancestral feminine and masculine energies of a living cultural heritage.

“Voices, songs, sounds of nature and birds interact to create emotions and inner images in each of us. A way to discover other perceptions of reality. An invitation to raise awareness of the importance of protecting nature, caring for our hearts and our souls. Ensueños is a walk to share to receive the vibrations of the invisible world.” Severine Fontaine
