The Promethean Arena

Some heroes are forged in the fire of battle, and some are born in the bliss of flow.

Description

At the Promethean Arena you can join other magical beings and mythical creatures in a variety of activities, reaching from dance, acro yoga and improv fight scenes to flow tool workshops and guided playfights. At night the Arena will host fire dancers to light the darkness, carrying the Promethean Flame to their fellow burners.

The Promethean Arena will be placed in the Promethean Camp and offer several physical activities and workshops to our visitors. Some of them will be:

Fire Space: When night falls the Prometheans offer a place of light, warmth and flow with a bonfire and music for everyone to gather round and share stories. On two nights of the gathering the arena will host a fire space, where fire spinners and dancers are invited to join the flaming flow to invoke the favor of the gods. If heroes from other camps want to open fire spaces on additional days, the Prometheans will provide their fire essence, equipment and counsel to empower the brave travellers to kindle the divine flames by themselves.

Playfight Space: A few times during the burn, the arena will become a place for friendly battle, where you can challenge your friends or fight with a stranger to learn your opponents true resolve. The playfights will be guided experiences, evoking the spirit of epic fights amongst magical creatures and putting the participants in touch with their mythical allies to assist them in their battles.

Duels: Even the gods fight with each other, so why should mortals go without disputes. The Prometheans offer a solution: Take it to the arena! One of the many blessings that the Prometheans are offering, is to invoke divine judgement by means of duel. These duels will be a competition of style and skill, in which the audience will decide the winner. The Prometheans will send an arbiter to negotiate the rules of the duel, provide the weapons and oversee its proper execution.

Workshop Space: The arena is not only a place for fighting, but welcomes all kind of movement arts. It can be used to host workshops, games and jams for dancing, acro-yoga, improv performances or playing flow tools. Come and learn something new in the Promethean Arena!

Free Play Space: When no other activities are hosted in the Arena, it will still offer access to all the equipment that will be acquired with the dream budget. Settle an argument with foam swords, a pillow fight or play with some of the shared flow tools. Ask a Promethean nearby, if you need advice with any of the equipment.
