Utopia is not a place. It is a space held by individuals adhering to higher ideals. Living hippie legend Fantuzzi teams up with Jurgis to recruit those who have all but lost faith in the fight for a more humane society.
This charismatic duo provides us an enriching perspective on the aftermath of the “flower-power” revolution that threatened the status-quo of civilized society 50 years ago, and what it left us to work with. It argues that communing in these Utopian spaces such as Burning Man and Rainbow Gatherings is the best way of bringing about positive change. Exposing oneself to Utopian reality make on an incarnation of it.
Their performance culminates with an interactive musical circle designed to rekindle faith in the human spirit, infect us with a new sense of possibilities, and illustrate the sort of trench-tactics and guerrilla warfare needed to carve-out, hold, and expand utopian spaces in our realities.
This interactive musical show was premiered at TEDx BlackRockCity2017 and was performed all over the playa at BurningMan 2017 at countless camps, at the “Burning of the Man”, on the Axolotl art-car, at Everywhere Pavillion, Center Camp, and many other locations.
