We stand here, in what might have been one of the world’s great city centres, inundated with images, information and promises of a ‘better’ tomorrow. We may not know it but we are in fact adrift in a sea of seductive myths and casuistic mythologies, clutching at words like progress, development, wealth... Then there are those who aren’t able to swim; are struggling to keep head above water. Referencing them in particular, this work suggests a few parts of the hole – ideas that are ‘central’ to the world order, ideas that are uncaring of edges and margins. These inflated, bloated blobs of synthetic material, spread across Panjim, speak for themselves, between themselves and, we hope, to you, the viewer.
Please note: These balloons are not works of protest art. They are definitely not advertisements. They are just balloons full of hot air.

Disclaimer: We would like to thank you all for your overwhelming response to the Festival! It is this enthusiasm that makes our return to Panjim all the more special. Performances and workshops have limited seating. Those who had pre-registered for a performance/workshop will be given preference for entry. Beyond that, if seats are left, entry will be allowed on a first come first serve basis.
We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.
