Performance with Viviana Druga
In her performance “The fat dreams of an Eastern bear“ Viviana Druga takes visitors on a journey to channel the energy of the Ukranian bear, a distant cousin of the Berlin bear. Fat as a materialized power source is a medicine used in archaic cultures centering bears throughout Eastern Europe. By using “bear fat vapors”, the ritualista offers healing to the participants, while enabling them to connect with nature.
What is the significance of rituals in contemporary life? How can spiritual practices help to connect with nature and with oneself – and how can we reflect on them?
"Art for me is a magical activity, a ritual that could help subjects (people) discover new dimensions of themselves." Viviana Druga
