Lacuna Festivals 2024-Our Bodies / Our Homes

Lacuna Festivals 2024-Our Bodies Our Homes

The theme for the 2024 Lacuna Festivals is ‘Our Bodies / Our Homes.’ This theme was originally suggested by Karolina Podoska and

in a closely fought vote, was chosen as the theme for Lacuna festivals 2024 by the participating artists of Metamorphosis 2023.

Our Bodies/ Our Homes is an elusive and multi-layered theme, signifying a complex myriad of differing ideas in distinct areas. Lacuna Festivals are open to a broad interpretation of the theme but to help you get started, below are a few potential starting points.

Possible interpretations of the theme include:temporary dwellings; the body as a gateway into the present moment; our bodies as our first homes; how we can go into ourselves; mental health/ill health; our emotions; the womb as a home; mother earth; feeling comfortable in our own skin; the body as a house for the soul; the certainty of being in your own body; astral projection, somatic experiences and meditation; my body is a temple; feeling at home; an experience, a person or a place; judgements and values placed on physical appearances; biblical readings of the body as a home; gender dysmorphia; gender fluidity; the gender binary; the patriarchy and feminism; stereotypes; belonging and not belonging; having roots; genetics; family, friends and chosen family; questioning your body, location, life; fighting your demons; acceptance; chronic illness; disability; social model of disability and accessibility; care for self, others and the planet; pollution; fashion; the climate crisis; relationships; hiding from yourself; hiding yourself from others; gratitude; why life is dressed the way it is; spirituality; the essence of being; living alone; solitude; loneliness; togetherness; church as home; chosen family; societal norms; social media and it’s impact; artificial intelligence; memories; forgetfulness, alzheimers, dementia, cancer and other life limiting illnesses; you as a divine being; you are the universe and the universe is your home.
