ⅩⅧ Ars Cameralis Festival


A journey to the extremity of the night

/6 — 30 November 2009/

We are set off for an extraordinary journey. The extremity of the night is a place which activates a mystery, an idea where occurs the rendezvous of the darkness and a bright afterglow. Our intention is to make the journey to the extremity of the night an expedition in the direction of freedom of uninhibited artistic statement. An expedition through the darkest time of the night where many people revive, but also the fear sneaks in.

The journey to the extremity of the night, although sometimes disturbing and deceiving, always exposes us to a wonderfull adventure of life and artistic delight. Journey that anyone of you can carry on, wandering through all those colorful trails infinitely. You are more than welcome! Remembering that twinkling light most often reveals itself behind a beautiful edge of undefined, important Meeting. Somewhere at the extremity of the night, at the end of a story, at the very beginning of Astonishment.
