CONCEPT: MUSIC, CINEMA, POETRY AND PHOTOGRAPHY ALL TOGETHER IN ONE PROJECT When Rogério Godinho created "ETERNAL RETURN" he had the primary objective of building something aesthetic, poetic and harmonious, both musically and image, searching in the simplicity of each frame the depth of the words that make up the lyrics. From the first to the last song of the CD, if it is to tell a story with a beginning and one end, something that most people feel in today's society. The theme is the need for CHANGE of someone who wanted to give a new direction to his life, peering opportunities. Basically, the character is someone who was "missing the future" - of the things he didn't live. So with this force coming from his inner, he decided to head to Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, making this boat trip, inspired by the strength and courage of the Portuguese navigators, seeking new challenges and new sensations. After a somewhat tricky journey, the arrival at Rio de Janeiro magically opened a new world for him, brimming with possibilities. Finally the change he craved! He thought he was arriving in a country that would steal his heart, believing at the time, that Brazil would be his home forever. After a few years in Brazil, having spent time in São Paulo as well as in Rio de Janeiro, the character felt that the lifeblood that change had provided him was beginning to run dry, starting to feel in his innermost self that probably the time for the return to Portugal and to Lisbon had come. When this feeling had ripened he decided to start the return journey to his hometown of Lisbon. This time, the path was calmer, passing through the same places he had travelled through but seeing them in a different way - with the perspective of someone who had done everything to follow the path he considered to be the best, with a feeling of having respectfully accomplished his duties towards himself. Essentially, having the perspective of someone who had grown up and become more complete as a person after all these new experiences, the diversity of landscapes, the different smells and dealing with people who were different, with different ideas about life but at the same time having much in common. The story ends with the arrival in Lisbon, returning to the Fado with which it all began, in the Eternal Return to something that he always was, because in truth, “we are what memories allow” ... * To tell this story, Rogério Godinho decided to join several artists from different areas from Portugal and Brazil, to get this multi-artistic project which brings together music, cinema, poetry, photography, painting and dance. It will be at the live shows that the public will have the full realization of the project, because in addition to the musicians on stage, the films for each song will be presented on the screen, beyond other surprises. In the shows, will naturally be transmitted the Portuguese and Brazilian feelings, in the universality of the situations that build the life of each one of us.
