With Winter Burn we welcome 2021 buoyed by a measure of hope and optimism, perhaps with a touch of caution. The Ten Principles serve as our framework for how we want to live and do things together, and so we chose a theme: Bubble Gum & Duct Tape.
Which of the Ten Principles come to mind when you see this theme we’ve chosen? Burners are endlessly creative, sometimes irreverent, wildly expressive. But this time, we mean to inject a bit of light-heartedness into this theme and not just ‘how many ways you can apply the Ten Principles’ to your performance, art or participation in this event.
When you ponder this theme, think about what makes things stick together, if it helps. Love, support, respect, chain, a guy rope, tie, wire, clasp, screws, nails, bandage, cord, harness … and of course, Bubble Gum and Duct Tape. Basically, think outside of the box, beyond bubble gum & duct tape.
