We wake this up
We wake the sleeping bear
In a landscape of milk and honey!
Welcome in the crossroads where inner and outer landscapes meet!
Do you need help with something you don’t know you need help with? Sign up for a full night’s participating cabin trip!
Vake (vigil) is a confidential form of mystical-theatrical therapy: a cabin trip, night-time radio, a camp, a silent retreat, a witches’ circle, an abandoned house, a sea battle. It can be many different things. Everyone is a participant and is inaugurated in an order. Vakeexamines the theater’s ritualistic origin. It is an event in which everyone is consecrated as a participant according to a self-blasting order caring for the souls. You are transported from Black Box teater to a secret location where the events unfold over the course of one night. If you need to retreat, you can always go and lie down – then the dreams you have in this place are your vigil. But if you manage to stay awake the whole night, you are promised you will receive more than you have to give.
