The Natural Circus

Berlin, January 2010

As a project The Natural Circus interrelates encounters with places and spaces, with poets and storytellers of all kind, communicating the everchanging poetry of life.

The Natural Circus wants to celebrate the beauty of the ephemeral, of ‘being in the moment’, the wonderful possibility to perceive and communicate poetic experiences.

It is this realm where we touch upon the fundamentals of how life unfolds, of how ecosystems develop and interact: it all emerges out of the moment.

This project supports a shift of paradigm in our way of perceiving and thinking, from a worldview based on separation to an understanding of interdependence, interconnectivity and constant transformation.

The deep realization that there is no distinction between ourselves and the environment is at the heart of sustainable or natural cultures:
For it is the world that is being perceived and loved as Self.

Is it not possible that there is no difference between The Natural Circus and the one who perceives it?
And when, if not in this moment, does the perception happen?
