Quiet Storms intends to explore the imagery around storms. Storms as powerful and meaningful phenomena, long beyond human power, but also storm as a metaphor of social and political intense struggles. Storms as a sign of the times, as visions from the future. Storms as a promise, or disillusion full of wreckage. A storm is coming, maybe it is already here and we do not even perceive it: My body is a forming storm. A storm is coming. I can feel the oppressive touching of the dense air in my skin. Thickness and stillness. Then the wind slowly starts, until space is anything but dust, and some drops of rain are now touching my skin. The revolt is already here.
