Running across three dates with three acts and three different headliners, “Paradise Found” responds to the extreme conditions of our current Age of Acceleration with a simple, though radical proposition—of nurturing talent and allowing it to develop at its own pace. Happening within the the ruins of a Medieval Franciscan monastery, the event will feature live performance and installations exploring themes of velocity and deceleration, concentration and contemplation, noise and silence, while inviting the listener to linger in the Edenic surroundings of the Playground – for accepting your mortality / Neiburga & Eglītis garden installation.
Creamcake's "Paradise Found" is part of this year's summer program of the Ruine der Franziskaner Klosterkirche. The curatorial focus is the medieval garden as a place of change and transformation. Against the backdrop of traditional ideas of the Garden of Eden and alchemical sciences,and the ancient desire to prolong human life, the program investigates the myth of "paradise" and utopias of survival.
