“Adriano brings the contradictions of social progress out into the open, from dangerous working conditions to the new poverty, from environmental devastation to building speculation, and he does it with the joy of the outsider, to the point that he still causes a stir in his shows when he denunciates the horrors of our daily life.”
Why do I pause? Where do my silences come from? I realized that modern communication is missing that pole that counterbalances the spoken word. I don’t want to get those big systems involved, but there are two poles in electricity: a positive and a negative pole. In modern communication what’s missing is the negative pole, which is made up of silences and pauses, and that are indispensable for thinking. Today, who’s talks the most? Television, because it has to follow the rules of the market and bombard us with information so that we can’t stop and think.
