    I really want to go but there’s so little details about the exact timings of the performances and the workshops. The website doesn’t provide much info :/

    I had a terrific time! I attended only Day 1 and enjoyed the performances by Nonotak, Nicholson and Altersal.

    There were some terrific installations especially by Dr Teardrop aka Maurice Mikkers, he is the one who managed to magnify a teardrop which ends up looking like a snowflake, absolutely beautiful. Read up on him and his work.

    Overall a great time, even the weather was a Blessing. Zahed Sultan did a terrific job once again.
