Once upon a time in a faraway land…there was a magical town that appeared like a mirage from dust once a year.
Welcome to Afrikaburn, an event that is the spectacular result of the creative expression of a community of volunteers who, once a year, gather in the Tankwa Karoo to create a temporary city of art, theme camps, costume, music and performance! For those that have been no explanation is necessary, for those that haven’t none is possible.
Portraits of Burners invites the viewer to briefly encounter the colourful and creative community who create a temporary existence in one of the most inhospitable environments on earth and builds a community based on the guiding principals of radical inclusion, gifting, decommodification, radical self-reliance, radical self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, leaving no trace, participation and immediacy.
