It was always my dream to see the realities cross, the boarders disappear, to see how impossible become possible. Imagine a land where everything your dreamt of became true because you let it unfold and blossom within your heart, you let it be on its own right and pace, synchronizing, flowing and manifesting. What is means to dream? You visualize your ideal world where you acknowledge your deepest desires and intentions. Overcoming fear of failure and trusting in timing of the universe. You believe, first of all, in yourself and never stop doing so. During the darkest and the brightest moments of your life you remember that it is all impermanent and all will be dissolved in time, leaving behind the offsprings of your creation.
The Land Of Forgotten Dreams it is a space that we build out of our fantasies and curiosities. It doesn’t belong to any specific territory, rather to the feeling inside of our hearts that is eternal and forever evolving. It is created to share our excitement for beauty in its various forms like photography, film, fashion, music, dance, spirituality and culture.
We showed “Inspired”, our first collection of Bakhirka Apparel through choreographic performance that combined modern dance with the elements of ancient motifs often found in ceremonial rituals of our ancestors. It was a challenging task to portray what costume used to represent for our tribal communities with fashion that exists today. The challenge was worth it and we were able to grasp through the use of particular fabrics, cuts and designs the spirit of a modern hero rooted in a power of old traditions.
The Land Of Forgotten Dreams became windows into different realities where you could see the reflection of what is already lays within you. Gorgeous photographs of Kaxinawa tribe taken by Yuri Kozyrev were displayed as floating universes that take you to the sacred jungle of Brazil. To dive even dipper into the journey of alternative spaces of South America we watched a film teaser by Vladimiros Nicolouzos called “The Land Of Forgotten Songs”that shows various shamanic practices of ancient communities. Nothing would be possible without a help of The Deep Forest Foundation that has been on a mission of preserving sacred knowledge and culture of our ancestors.
The event took place in Berlin during a hot month of July where our friends from all over the world, including 8 members of Kaxinawa tribe themselves came to share joy of connecting and being together. It was absolutely magical time of praying, dancing, indulging, having fun and becoming one tribe again. Thank you all who have been a part of this incredible ride called life. Sending love from my heart to yours <3
