Inara blogs about the upcoming Burn2 big event, A Carnival of Mirrors:
BURN2 2015 will be opening its gates on Saturday 17th October, and will run through until Sunday 25th October 2015, culminating in the burning of the Man on Saturday, October 24th and the burning of the Temple on Sunday, October 25th.
The official press release describers the theme as being:
About mirrors and masks, mazes and merger. It will be a kind of magic show that takes the form of an old fashioned carnival. This Carnival of Mirrors asks three essential question: within our media saturated world, where products and people, consumption and communion morph into an endlessly diverting spectacle, who is the trickster and who is being tricked, and how might we discover who we really are?
Classic carnivals, as theatres of illusion, upheld a very strict dividing line that separated carnies, cast as showmen, from members of a naïve public who were labelled chumps and suckers, marks and rubes. Our carnival, however, will perform an even more subversive trick — its motto is Include the Rube. The wall dividing the observer from observed will disappear, as by an act of magic; through the alchemy of interaction, everyone at once can be the carny and the fool.
