Parko Eleftherias, Athens Municipality Arts Center and Museum of Anti-dictatorial and Democratic Resistance, Vassilissis Sofias, Athens

Be the point of no-reference.
and as a state of formation.
Continue to play with the beat.
Vibrate with me, so chaos can enter.
It is an invitation.
As water.
As the beat sounds,
the senses awaken.
hits the drum.
And celebration starts,
for joy and grief.

Note: Visitors can bring along sleeping bags, comfortable clothes, food, and water and may stay in the space for the twenty-four-hour duration of the piece. Smoking is not permitted. A public discussion with Georgia Sagri follows the completion of the performance on Sunday night.
