it is based on 365 of 10 degree something-s.
so far 100 of those emerged.
one 10 degree something is a minimalistic microcosm translated into words, put into ten numbered lines. the essence of each microcosm created is based on synchronised thinking and written down only when sharing time and space physically. the words appear through listening and talking to each other about something.
at the festival the process of creating 10 degree something will be shared in an open space. visitors are invited to explore the texts on the table - what has been written, what are the similarities, what is the structure, what makes the whole. at the same time filling the room with their presence, investigating why and how the abstract becomes personally readable, when does the document become a poem instead.
you are invited to take a sit and stay around.

kadri noormets is an estonian performing artist and text creator working on theatre. often radical in her views. even if releasing a book or making an appearance in gallery, it is to elaborate her statement about theatre - an organised space of concentration, as well as art, music or literature potentially, essentially is.
