With the shade around her waist / she dreams on her balcony, […] Under the gypsy moon, / all things are watching her / and she cannot see them. A surrealist journey through colours and shapes inspired by the poem Romance Sonámbuloby Federico García Lorca. Visual poetry in the rhythm of fantastic dreams and passionate nights.
