Between The Earth and The Sky

SOMA Festival Praha 2020 -  Sunday 10:00 -12:00

Between The Earth and The Sky -  Workshop will take place outside in Petřín gardens in any whether.

Earth quietly and patiently provides its support.

Heaven constantly calls for growth.

And in between there is man.

Curious and inquisitive.

In the breath, in the touch.

In motion, in flight ...
