Forces of Nature #2

The Ponta Delgada – Azores 2027 bid for European Capital of Culture has launched the “Forces of Nature” photographic series, by the photographer Paulo Goulart. The aim is to show that our nature is human, by showing people that build the culture of this place.

Eleonora Marino Duarte was born in Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but she 's Azorean by choice and affinity. She is an actress, director, writer, poet.
Because she loves the environment and animals, she is a vegetarian and an ecologist. She considers herself a small part of “that sovereign organism that is Nature” and she lives in search of full communion with it. Nature is in her work as an actress, as it provides her with pleasure, well-being, comfort and health so that she can be vibrant and full of energy in theatrical activities. The colors, the harmony and the sounds that she finds in the natural environment inspire her in her stagings. As a writer, observing Nature and all its continuous process of creativity and transformation gives her encouragement.
