We started by creating a house - the four walls we saw the most in the last year - and we waited. It is not enough to love a house, it is necessary to listen to it. And it takes time to listen.
We know that it is said that audio is blind, but we believe that it is precisely because of its blindness that it manages to be intensely imagistic. Perhaps the word "blindness" does suggest a limitation, but in fact, in the field of imagination, it is the other dramatic vehicles that are limited. In contrast, the audio, almost absolutely incorporeal, has no limits. This was the roof of our house, of our collective ruin. We entrusted the imagination of seven divisions to seven authors. It is from them that the voices to which we will give the possible body arise.
