a time for believing in life after love
a time to medicate
and a time to say goodbye
free entrance, come whenever you want
on the 5th of july, from 10 pm to 6 am
Are all ducks meant to swim in water? What about those swimming in jam, those flying through electric currents and those spending their nights typing meaningless words on a waterproof keyboard?
aren't we, at the end, all trapped within our own storms ?
This is a farewell ritual, the goodbye to a magician. A magician that drew the cards in the following order: The Star (XVII), The Tower (XVI), Temperance (XIV).
One last dance under the hypnosis of its mysterious but now exhausted powers.
Wandering around different installations, sets and worlds, in an open ritualistic environment, you are free to experience the given space in the way that feels best to you. A soft but mesmerizing set, along with a food sacrifice, a spirit of the woods administering the natural medicines, soil, a lot of soil, mud and dirt.
