Hello! I'm Ilario and together with Sophie and Anna we are the curators of the Bazaar which will be part of Entheos camp @ Burning Man 2019.
The Bazaar is an interactive space for the Entheos community and Burners alike, synonymous to a warm, vibrant and slightly chaotic place where a curious soul would find one thousand and one treasures, and will embark on a journey of self expression, sensorial discovery and fun encounters. This welcoming space will cover a variety of gifts from Entheos, enticing visitors to explore the depth of the tent, to take a break and let the care of their souls and beauty in the hand of others.
The central area will be covered with carpets, cushions, drapes and will host various activities. A samovar will keep hot tea for the parched visitor, whilst they watch a show, relax or get a Tarot reading. The space will be open daily 10am-10pm, with ad-hoc activities only be happening few hours everyday.
The Bazaar offers 6 gifts:
1) The Boutique, a fun space where anyone can pick from a wide selection of clothing, accessories and jewelry to enhance their outfit or even to do something new and different for a complete personal metamorphoses.
2)The Makeup Station, a wide range of make up with body paint and markers and temporary tattoos. Burners will be able to paint on themselves and on others freely. This would be a playful station for everyone to get into the art and joy of interaction and embellishment.
3)The (Real) Tattoo Parlour, with professional tattoo artists on site!
4)The Olfactive Journey, where you will discover the world of essences and their power to connect us to emotions and memories. Everyone can come by and experiment with perfumes and aromas and can even create their own.
5)The Desertic Sounds, to really transport you into a world of senses and allow for a short pause from the rest of the playa. Background music and DJ sets will be re-creating the atmosphere of an ancient Bazaar, both uplifting and introspective, mystical and exciting with tribal beats and soulful melodies
6)The Guest Activities, with tarot readings, tea & live performances!
All the donations will be used to set up the space and buy the remaining materials to make it happen!
