The specialty of the festival is the visual and performative revival of the castle and its surroundings. Scenographers use natural conditions for minimal interventions, thus turning the sinkhole into an amphitheater, a pile of wood into a monumental sculpture, a wagon into a boat or a field into the illusion of the sea. This year’s theme of the festival is “Spiritus Mundi”, as a paraphrase of forgotten ghosts of the castle, which will be revived during the festival.
NATURE AND ECOLOGY
Sustainable development and care for the environment are always important and emphasized for all festival activities. This is reflected through the recycling system, energy saving, the use of porcelain instead of plastic, and the concept of “land-art”, which uses primarily natural materials. After the festival, we want to leave the environment as it was before.
The added value of the festival are volunteers. Members of societies and individuals who devote many hours to volunteer and organize themselves to the festival, as they come at the site at their own expense and come out of their own motives: meeting with other artists and like-minded, staying and performing in a beautiful environment, and support for supportive and diverse community.
COMMUNITY BASED NANOTOURSIM
One of the main orientations of the festival is connecting people, their potentials and artistic expressions. The event promotes intergenerational cooperation and takes care of the future of young people and involvement of the elderly. The festival motivates local people to participate, and their engagements are a unique enrichment.
