Yesterday there was the christmas party in FreeCuvry!
From last monday we had to prepare the Pagoda (the common space near the big, big tippy in the river side) for the party, little by little…
Some people are already living in FreeCuvry, but we don’t work so much together. Also if is not yet too cold in Berlin, winter is coming and everybody are fixing the own house to be ready for the hard season. I’m also working almost all the time in my house.
For all these reasons it is good sometime working together, we can know better each other and create a more united and stronger community, everybody doing what he/she can do, any small thing it’s very important.
Making flyer, christmas decoration, building roof and bench, bringing generator, cooking some food, preparing hot wine, playing music, fire performance, preparing the fireplace or just screaming…etc.
I showed my video works on the big wall over the graffiti.
It was a nice collaborative work.
The people in Cuvry are free, free from schemes and convections, free from society and good behaving rules. So at Cuvry’s party everybody is free to do whatever he/she wants, in the good and evil…
In a christmas party in Cuvry you can meet every kind of people, from the neighbor old ladies with her long elegant coat, to the girl with a with a real white fox fur and a gold scarf, to the girl who tried to choke herself with the cable of the projector because she thought her love was ended.
But yesterday there was a person at the party whom I want to speak about little bit more: Adriana. She is a german woman, about 40/50 years, maybe less, but the street-life made her to seem older than she really is. I don’t know how long she lives in the street and which kind of obscure past is behind her, but today she is like she has lot of demons around her, you can heard their voices when she laughs.
When she speak you can’t really understand what she is saying, and if she is really speaking with you or with one of her demons.
Yesterday her favorite activity was burning stuff into the fire drum. First she started to burn wood, also if the fire was already strong and not thinking about the wood is the most precious thing in Cuvry, it is never enough. Then she started to burn all the christmas trees she could find and throw into the fire, then she burned her wicker basket, then glass bottles and plastic trash, and everything she took, she threw into the fire, like she wanted to burn part of herself…just one thing she didn’t burn, the japanese ax that she stole from Yuki. If Ilaria, another italian girl who live in FreeCuvry, had not told us she saw Adriana to steal Yuki’s ax, we could never had it again. It was not easy to take it, she was throwing me into the fire like all the other stuff, but in the end we had our ax again!
This is normal christmas people in FreeCuvry.
