Ο φανταστικός κόσμος του Roger Dean

γράφει η Άννι Δαμιανού

Εξωτικά, φανταστικά τοπία με δραματικούς και παράλογους σχηματισμούς βράχων, εξωγήινη Άγρια Ζωή, και παράξενες οργανικές δομές… αυτά είναι τα έργα του William Roger Dean.

Having created what is effectively a community today, through last year’s takeover of the abandoned army camp 361 with «COLONY 361», The Afro Banana Republic Festival this year, establishes its action through «THE MOTHERSHIP». It is now a well-established community, which has developed its own way of thinking and being, with its own customs and rituals.

The Festival is expanding as an idea. It’s expanding in scope. The interactive nature of the festival is strengthened with the incorporation of 20 new citizens, members of the «PARAVAN PROACTIONS» theatre troop. They are effectively undertaking essential roles in the state, such as the post-office and radio station. The team was brought together with the aim of giving the organisation a vivid theatricality, intense interaction with the public, and perhaps most importantly, a unique personal experience.
The eclectic choice of music produces a fusion of many styles, thus creating a kaleidoscope of sounds and emotions. The crowd’s experience will be navigated through the three music stages, presenting renowned bands and DJs from overseas, as well as some of the most active musicians of the local scene. Through organic and highly electronic sounds, choices range from funky, afro-beat rhythms and world music to the best Disco, House and Techno.
Closely paralleling the continuous evolution of the Community, is the rising standard of living of The Afro Banana Republic. There are new additions to the Festival grounds, such as a space for camping, floating beds and a special version of the beloved Nicosia coffee shop ‘Haratsi’. Not forgetting, the good selection of interesting food choices right down to the ubiquitous ‘Frutaria' where visitors can have their freshly squeezed juices or just shop for their weekend's fruit supply.

Paul Klee

18 December 1879 – 29 June 1940

Paul Klee was born in Switzerland. During the course of his career, he not only participated in various art movements, but he was also one of the leading forces in many of these movements. Some of the forms he worked on during his career include expressionism, cubism, and surrealism. During the later portion of his career, he also worked as an art instructor for some time, prior to the Nazi rule removing him from his post; at this point, he and his family fled Germany, and went back to Switzerland, where Paul Klee remained until he died several years later.
