We started with wanting to change the world with a performance. We felt like idiots.
Then we danced a lot. We jumped. We called on the folk traditions of Sardinia and the Basque Country. We sang. We jumped some more. We committed.
Now we promise to stick together. We promise to persevere. We promise to do our best.
