Desperate, penniless, fragile artists with an obvious sense of worthlessness, trying to make it.make it…
When everything reopened in August 2020, after months of confinement in the house, the artists were the only ones who did not resume their work normally. In the time of a year and a half, in and outside the lockdown, Donpasta recounts his daily life intertwined with that of an unemployed set designer, a musician without unemployed set designer, a musician without a show, a peasant poet, documenting the way they have survived an external and internal conflict. They felt that in this crisis fragile things would risk disappearing. They needed an idea to get out of the murky waters and that’s how they became… Seafarers.
