In the case of “Between Worlds”, the research was extensive and extremely interesting. The SESC Bertioga requested that we deal with an ecological theme, as the unit is located in a region that still contains remnants of the Atlantic Forest; they also have various ecological projects, such as a reserve and a protection for native flora and fauna on its premises.
On the other hand we also studied the history and culture of the region, which can be considered one of the most historic in Brazil, situated just a few miles away from San Vicente, the first city founded by the Portuguese conquistadores. There is also the historical story of the German Hans Staden who encountered the Tupi, a cannibal tribe that inhabited the area. We read about the mythological beings of the forest and about the culture of the local indigenous peoples, such as the story of the famous chief Cunhambebe, who appears to our fictional character in a somewhat dreamlike encounter. We had the opportunity to visit a Guarani reserve in the region and there a Pagé (shaman) told us about their ability to direct their dreams towards helping them solve their daily problems.
Part of the fictional story was inspired by a scene from a story by a science fiction author that we admire greatly, Ray Bradbury, where a sort of time warp occurs.
In the end, the fictional narrative in this Fictional Audiotour is more subtle; the character is a completely normal person who goes through some, let’s say, “ancestral” experiences, and enters into a form of communication with the local ancient cultures and the surrounding natural world, embarking on a journey through time and between different worlds.
This work has a much more dreamlike, poetic character than the previous Audiotours.
