Abstract: O desconhecido entra na sala onde eu já me encontro sentado à mesa, um cubículo triangular sem janelas num centro comercial da Costa da Caparica. Aqui se vão reunir vários veteranos da guerra do Ultramar, amigos de um veterano meu conhecido, que hoje faz o papel de anfitrião. Chama-se Marco Mané, é o gerente deste centro comercial, antigo comando africano da Guiné-Bissau. É assim que venho fazendo há vários anos. Falo com um veterano, que por sua vez conhece outros, que por sua vez conhecem outros. Procuro novas histórias de guerra, novos pormenores, procuro vozes que se juntem ao coro que tenho na cabeça, para compor uma sinfonia coral, a sinfonia coral da nossa guerra africana.
I am already sitting at the table when the stranger enters the room. It is a windowless, triangular cubicle in a commercial centre on the Costa da Caparica. I am due to meet some veterans from the Colonial War, friends of a former soldier that I know. His name is Marco Mané, and he is our host — he is the manager of this shopping centre and a former African commando in Guinea-Bissau. I’ve been doing this for several years. I talk to one veteran, who knows others, who know others. I am searching for new war stories, new details, new voices to join the chorus in my head. I’m making a choral symphony, the choral symphony of our African war.
