a poem for a park Tabor
Globus Hystericus (SI)
If you visit the park, when the day turns into night, you may come across some mysterious forms. At dusk, these visitors fill the space with their memories and hopes. If you stay until dark, you may witness the intertwining of their lives and immerse yourself in their dreams.
Busker’s Dream is a site-specific, theatrical intervention for a park. Parks mean different things to different people. For some, it means a shortcut home. For others, a pleasant place to meet friends. Lovers whisper sweet promises in parks. And the elderly gather on benches and share their troubles. Parks see all this, and more….
The play "Busker’s Dream: A Poem for a Park" is a street variety show with larval masks. These simple masks—black-and-white, large shapes—bring a unique dreamscape to the park, which combines with a romantic view of street art to create a spectacle. The show is a tribute to street artists, street theater and the life of the public spaces that mean so much to us.
