RINGS OF ENLIGHTENMENT WITH (IM)PERFECT STRANGERS AROUND COMMUNAL CAMPFIRES
There is something magical, even ritualistic, about sitting around a fire at night, in nature, together within a circle of people, watching the flames, listening ... It connects us across millennia to our primal ancestors. Stories are told, memories are shared. We reflect on the vastness of time and space that enfolds us. And when we return to the mundane world, with the smell of smoke in our clothes, our souls are enriched and our imaginations have expanded.
CONSTELLATIONS is a promenade event in which small groups of spectators follow a trail in nature at night. Along the path, they spend time at a series of campfires, each one tended by a "Guardian" – an artist, a writer, a musician or a performance artist – who hosts an experience and exchange with their audience.
This is an arts project designed specifically for the pandemic era by Brett Bailey, with the involvement of local artists and thinkers.
