‘Radical Ritual’ will be 2017’s motive.
Yesterday Burning Man promoters unveiled the festival’s theme that will rule next year’s edition. On the news they promise an enlightening experience by focusing on the ceremonial aspect.
‘Radical Ritual’ invites all attendants to create “interactive rites, ritual processions and to elaborate images, shrines, icons, temples, and visions“. They complemented – “Our theme will occupy the ambiguous ground that lies between reverence and ridicule, faith and belief, the absurd and the stunningly sublime.”
Burning Man takes place every year at Nevada’s Black Rock Desert and next year starts on August 27th ending September 4th. There’s no information yet about the tickets sales dates.
