change your perspective

By the answer I got, it’s all up to myself! I can do whatever I want. If I want cracks or spaces-in-between … it’s all up to me … And maybe I’ve been thinking for many years, that my acting is due to others, what others expect, the rules and society and stuff. But you know – I’m me! So it’s my own decision. We’re all the saviors, you know. And we’re here to save the world and ourselves. We can start by getting ourselves out where we want to be. That would be a Crack in my life”.

Visionary in The Crack by Fiction Pimps, 2010

The Crack was very much inspired by the formation of the ritual as structured by the ethnographer Arnold van Gennep (1909) with its pre-liminal (separation), liminal (transition) and post-liminal (rein-corporation) phase. Thus Level Kitchen of The Crack served the double function of preparing the visitors for the separation with everyday life in the pre-liminal phase and reincorporating them in the post-liminal phase. As part of the post-liminal phase interviews with visionaries (by entering The Crack all visitors became visionaries) was carried out, allowing the experience in the liminal (transitory) phase to integrate into everyday life, by verbalizing and reflecting upon how the somatic teachings could be integrated into the daily routines of everyday life.

Inspirational quote – Happy holidays:

“Poetic Terrorism is an act in a Theater of Cruelty, which has no stage, no rows of seats, no tickets & no walls … The PTerrorist behaves like a confidence-trickster whose aim is not money but CHANGE. Don’t do PT for other artists, do it for people who will not realize (at least for a few moments) that what you have done is art …” . Hakim Bey in the TAZ-book
