“ Somos tres personas que vivimos lejos de nosotros mismos. Jérémy vive en Porto, él es parisino pero ha elegido Porto para estudiar y finalmente para establecerse. María se ha mudado hace un año a Austria y yo, nacido en Galicia, vivo desde hace catorce meses en Madrid. Creo que esa es la razón por la que hemos elegido recuperar para este proyecto un título ya escrito por Herberto Helder, Os passos em volta, publicado en 1963 y que ahora, meses después de su muerte, cobra fuerza pese a ser un autor marginal, que conserva su esencia bajo la complejidad se sus palabras y la dificultad de su lectura.

¿En qué punto os encontráis de vuestro viaje y cuáles son las sensaciones? “
