You bring the light 2019

I want to sing for my friends, here and now, sing so hard that my heart melts down.

I want to break myself, and sacrifice everything for them.

I want to be broken and just as scattered as I am, and just keep on singing.

You bring the light is an autofictive ceremony of love dedicated to friends, reaching out from teenage years to

infinity. We want to show friendship love as the biggest love of all. It is a fundamental power that supports life,

and can make you go through whatever: the darkest fears, traumas, pain and changes. We couldn’t go on

without each other. But then again, we also think that friendship can be a harrowing lovestory that includes

heartbreaks, possessiveness and fear of losing someone.
