When the birds fly low, the wind will blow

Four people return to the faded glory of a house they once lived and loved.

They come to clarify unresolved questions and relationships.
They do not know each other, because they lived in the house in different periods.

Nobody knows how their meeting will end.

There is a change, maybe even a threat in the air.

With this starting point for his performance When The Birds Fly Low, The Wind Will Blow, the young choreographer Helder Seabra touches on notions of exile, memory and melancholy.

The saudade haunts: he cannot deny his Portuguese ancestry.
