Obscura Day 2016: Search for the Hidden in the Forest of Fruska Gora

Join us in the magical adventure of discovering Deer-people in the Fruska Gora forest, and experience the ancient wisdom of the Forest Spirit.

Legends and stories about mystical beings and wonders have been surrounding the forest of Fruska Gora for centuries.

Join us on Obscura Day as we invoke Deer-people, touched and guided by the Forest Spirit, and embrace their wisdom with our ability to listen, to observe, to imagine, to perform and to dance. As the legend tells it, they will find you if you let them.

For all explorers and fantasy lovers, this will be a unique opportunity to dive into the search for the hidden and to connect with all the aspects that the deer symbolizes – grace, tenderness, compassion, peace, power… and to enjoy the beauty and mystery of Fruska Gora.

Your guides in this journey will be Milena Ćuk and Milena Stanojević, authors of the project Search for the Hidden. Within the project, workshops are organized in nature with the goal to connect and reconnect with ourselves, others and the environment. During workshops, we practice exercises based on imagination, improvisation, expressive arts, and sensory labyrinth theater, using elements of nature and mythology as inspiration.

Fruška Gora, a former island in the Pannonian sea, is located in the north of Serbia (around 15 km from Novi Sad and around 60km from Belgrade). This unique, wondrous and curious place, with a rich cultural-historical legacy and countless rare examples of plant and animal life, has been proclaimed a national nature park since 1960.
