Main Program

Violetta Went to Ηeaven / Andrés Wood

“Write as you like, use the rhythms that come out, try different instruments, sit at the piano, destroy the metric, shout instead of singing, blow your guitar and ring the horn. Hate mathematics, and love eddies. Creation is a bird without a flight plan; that will never fly in a straight line.”

Violeta Parra

We’ll gradually find out her secrets, fears, frustrations and joys. Not only will we present her multiple works, but also her memories, her loves and her hopes. Her achievements are suspended in a passionate journey with the characters who made her dream, laugh and cry.
