FANTASIA 2014 is the third event in the series, following fantasia2011 and fantasia2012. All fantasia events have been at the internationally known underground art and music warehouse Rhinoceropolis. In Fantasia events, the objective is transforming the entire warehouse into a life size diorama, gallery, video art arena, sculpture garden, and performance space; transporting whomever attends and participates to a new feeling of reality. A team of around 30 artists and musicians improvise and execute pre-envisioned challenging installations for a week within the space previous to the opening and festival. 2014's imagery will include elements of a coral reef planetarium, tropical infinity sculpture garden, and ultra violet laser arena video lobby. Attendees can expect the feeling of visiting an art museum, festival, ritualist performance experience, underground rave lounge, temporary autonomous zone, and hyper-sensory futurist jaguarian realm; within the 48 hour long time-space.
Fantasia events are largely reactive to the misuse and under-utilization of public and urban space. Like and unlike some other art events, they are fueled by the drive to completely drench an area with spirit and visual magic. We ( the artists involved ), believe that many environments in public space are designed with apathy and ignorance to the vivid imagination of human beings and nature. The public are largely unaware or naive to the fact that we are walking around inside the financial elites' program, which is many times void of any imaginative intention ; only driven by the desire to keep the few in control of all resources. Holding the imagination hostage and hiding the possibilities of beauty and alchemical architectural design from the masses keeps many people unaware of the creative and infinite potential of their selves as individuals and communities. Creativity is the greatest rebellion.
Fantasia 2014 is a 2 day long event on Friday June 6th, and Saturday June 7th at Rhinoceropolis (3553 Brighton Blvd. 80216.) Friday is the opening and viewing of the environment with some interactive performances, photo shoots, a handful of music performances, and is free. Saturday is the festival night, with non-stop music performances, dances, performance art happenings, and has a suggested donation of 10$ at the door ( however no one will be turned away from entrance to the festival.) Money from the door will go towards paying the artists involved and keeping Rhinoceropolis running and upgraded. We believe in compensating the indispensable value of creativity; especially reimbursing the few who have spent their own resources on plane tickets and travel expenses to contribute to and experience the event.
