IX ISLA Festival. Lost (and Found) ParadisesInstituto Cervantes Dublín, Laura Martín
From Milton to Borges and from Cervantes to Seamus Heaney, poets and novelists, together with artists and creators, have taught us that paradise can be found around the corner or in our innermost imagination. In an island at the end of the world or in the depths of a book, in the clamour of a symphony or in the sacred fire of a stew, in the colours of a canvas or in the silence of a library —the idea of happiness interweaves with the dreams and inquietude of the human being, painting infinite notions of paradise. In this unique moment of convergence between anxiety and hope, the 9th ISLA Festival will bring together the Irish, Spanish, Argentinian, Cuban, Chilean, Colombian, Mexican and Peruvian to celebrate the dialogue among our languages, our cultures and our dreams.
