Dramatised reading, questioning the past, reflecting on the present, imagining the future. Until recently, death was seen as something abstract that only happened to others. Life was seen as an unalterable routine repeated with increasing boredom. Then suddenly, everything explodes into a thousand pieces and then slowly rebuilds itself in a somewhat strange way. Meanwhile, in the background, the media mix sensationalism and banality in a constant hubbub, awareness of fragility is present, social networks become battlefields for the people, far-right parties shout their proclamations with ever-increasing force, health recommendations ask us to take extreme precautions and, finally, the need to move forward arises, without knowing exactly what the word forward means.
