Sneglen is a project created by a musician Haizea Huegun, a videographer Gorka Ipiñazar and a dancer Anastasia Krasnoshchoka. Sneglen is inspired by the poem Bird of Stone.
Bird of Stone
To be made from stone and to feel like a bird
because the wind spreads the dust from the hands.
To see oneself as a bird in the reflection,
although still on the asphalt,
heated from afternoon light at five.
in an agonising corner of the day,
unable to gnaw the air.
Feeling like leaf or feather despite being flesh
and, at the end of the day, be the one to fall.
To be oneself but to feel like others and others and others,
till oneself’s sunset,
and to be back to the origin,
where the mud was faceless,
and the wings lighter.
