To complement the midwinter/yule kick off of the year cycle project, midsummer asked for a public intervention: paniekbloei. On the 4th of July, we declared ourselves independant and took the nomadic garden we planted on the roof of the theaterschool to the streets for a religious procession, to reconcile the first sons of Adam: Cain and Abel, and thus find a way for the wandering jew and all the rest of us, restless dogs, to rest our heads and plant our seed,

We declare our in-deep-end-dance, Independance Day. This is Amsterdam Jodenbree, Amsterdam Mokum, still crying, Amsterdam magical centre, Amsterdam kabouter city, gnome city of provo, Amsterdam Republic, This is the place where we plant a seed. Half a year back I stood on the rooftop, like a restless dog searching for its place. Like a wandering jew. Today we undertake a procession from that very rooftop through old Amsterdam towards the dam monument. A procession with a nomadic garden on the loose. The wandering ‘zwerftuin‘ garden that has blossomed last few months. A procession to reunite Abel with Cain. Cain the farmer that killed his brother, Abel the Nomad. We want to reconcile the roots with the movement. It’s coming closer, we hear it approaching with the sound of roots through moist soil…

PANICBLOOM: the phenomenon of rapid bloom when plants get moved or threatened.
