Handa Gote: URBAN CAMPING 1


Durational performance music from 24-hour camping experience on the National Theatre's 

piazzetta in Prague. Recorded June 20th, 2011.




Handa Gote performance ensemble spent 24 hours camping on the National Theatre's piazzetta in homemade ceremonial masks and clothing. Relaxation, conversation, and games; a further unspecified ceremony; the erection of a portable temple for further unspecified godheads; cooking food and whiling the time away by playing on homemade instruments, through song and dance, the creation of arrowheads and other practical tools using available materials (glass from bottles, replacing the more difficult-to-find obsidian or flintstone), and about two hours ritual of invocation of money.
