Catharsis is the purgation of emotions experienced through art or any extreme change in emotion that results in renewal and restoration.

About

Catharsis is the purgation of emotions experienced through art or any extreme change in emotion that results in renewal and restoration.

Inspired by this concept, Arthur Mamou-Mani has designed an innovative camp entitled Catharsis for Burning Man at Black Rock City, Nevada.

Design

Catharsis is a Steam Theatre in which the stage is fractalized, breaking the boundary between audience and artist. Its geometry is based on the Poincaré Disk (an infinite tiling in the hyperbolic space) which will provide endless possibilities to perform and create in the spirit of radical self-expression.

Our hope is to create a new kind of municipal building for BRC, a fractal landmark working both as roman amphitheater and bath, positioned as close to center camp as possible to become a forum for all artists – a giant set of synapses connecting the creative spirit of all citizens.
