“Not everything we face can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it is faced”.
Lullabies, love songs and intervention songs have always been part of Sílvia Real’s life. “I have always loved to sing: to put my children to sleep, in the shower, cooking or when I travel alone in the car. I have also sung in some shows, standards and original songs,” she says. The show that was supposed to be a solo show was transformed into a show of exchange with her artistic accomplices, the choreographer Francisco Camacho and the musician Sofia Sequeira, with whom she has worked on several projects, and with two young artists, Beatriz Valentim and Magnum Soares, performers in A Laura quer!, the last show of Grupo 23: silêncio! with whom she wanted to collaborate again. Thus is My Songs – A minha revolução!: ” Just singing, learning new songs and playing other instruments, a personal revolution for me as a performer, a huge challenge. But also a way to relax when faced with what I observe in this very sad world… The anguish of many people, the avalanche of deaths and the multiple discriminations, such as ethno-racial and gender, which accumulate and worsen and put an enormous burden on us individually and collectively. Each person finds his or her possible escape. This was the one I found to endure this moment in our history”, describes Sílvia Real.
