The Prophetess

(2019-2020)

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Drawing from the observations, experiences

and thoughts gathered throughout her life,

the prophetess, in a surge of hope and

altruism, shares her conception of a world

which should have been, could or will be:

a manifesto, for a fictitious or latent

generation. The text is freely inspired by

a Francis Ponge poem, The Law and the

Prophets (1930), reinterpreted and rewritten

to better anchor  it to the contemporary

context as well as to my own ideals.
