“My Freedom, Your Wings” is a project conceived in response to invitations from two Portuguese cultural non-profit groups in Tavira and Olhão to stage a music and poetry show. Muriel Piquart‘s intention was to create a performance with a cross-national European flavour which linked up with paths she has pursued over time as an actress, theatre producer and musician. Her fascination with words and metamorphosis has led to encounters with contemporary writers. One is Eduardo Vaz, whose poems in Portuguese she translated into French. She developed the creation with Eduardo and Jina Nebe (Czech-French visual artist and musician). She drew on poetry (French, Portuguese Italian), while the music was Lusophone.
We have created an open-ended, open-minded show – one we could take on tour to different countries, using more French or English, Italian, Portuguese or Czech, depending on the audience.
