Pottery Fair in Sibiu, Romania.
there were so many cool things!
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned that the more I just sort of jump in feet-first without asking too many questions, without overthinking things [or] over-cooking them, the more fuel I’ve had for making music and making art and feeling more alive
i agree, let’s jump in feet-first without asking too many questions, without overthinking things

ever wondered how does terror feel?
Teatr Biuro Podróży (Travel Agency Theatre) from Poland manages to express it in their performance “Carmen Funebre”… the audience sees the terror and feels it :) i was in the first row, sitting down… quite impressive.
The inspiration for this play was the war in Bosnia, and other ethnic conflicts, as well as world-wide outbreaks of nationalism and intolerance. In preparation for „Carmen Funebre,” members of the theatre company met refugees from the former Yugoslavia, who bore witness to their fate. The refugees’ accounts of lost relatives and homes gave inspiration to the actors as they worked on various scenes and built metaphors which described universal themes of the condition of displaced people. In the production of „Carmen Funebre” Teatr Biuro Podróży uses means which can attract the attention of the experienced spectactor as well as the accidental passer-by. Stilts, fire, searchlights, spectacular sets, and chilling music threaten the audience while evoking both fear and compassion. Although there are few words in the performance, the images are clear and powerful. source
Carmen Funebre has been performed in almost 50 countries around the world. In 1995, it received the Fringe First and Critics’ Award during the Festival in Edinburgh.
and recently it was performed in Chisinau, too. Thanks to the Polish Institute in Bucharest and to the Theatre itself :)
the main award of the International Biennial of Painting, Chisinau went to Japan
