Radion * November 9 * 2019

November 9, 2019

Burns are transformative…
They are places where you learn things about yourself, where your inner vision opens, your horizons expand. The Decom is here to celebrate the challenge that comes from change. And to hopefully soften the sometimes-rough landing…

The very basic core of a Burner’s spirit is their passion for adventure. The joy of life that comes from our encounters with new experiences. There is no greater thrill than to discover a changed horizon, to have a different sun for each new day.

Using these learnings and new horizons, we encourage you to contribute to this year’s philosophy. Create an artwork, performance or decoration that forecasts your future. Imagine alternative pasts which, branching off from what we know, create alternative realities. The horizon leans forward, offering you space to take new steps of change.

Post-Burn blues is real and Default World can be a bitch! So come celebrate, dance and express with us. Let’s go back in time and share what we learned at the Burns we visited. And together we’ll take steps forward and try something new.

You’re invited to our 6th annual Dutch Decompression event on November 9, at Radion in Amsterdam.

It will be an eve and night full of Art, performances, surprises, Hugs ‘nd Hello’s and music, together.

Our Dutch Decompression event has occurred in November the past years, and anything afterwards is typically considered a warm-up for the next Burning Man. There has been an official Decompression Party hosted by the Burning Man organization since 1999. The Burning Man organization has since made the term “Decompression” a registered trademark and must conform to a set of rules.

Our decompression parties are sometimes reminiscent of early Burning Man festivals due to their informality and smaller size.

The name comes from an analogy to diving, where decompression refers to a period of time spent by deep sea divers either in decompression chambers or at various depths on their way to the surface henceforth, gradually adjust to surface pressure in order to avoid the bends.
