PAPAY GYRO NIGHTS 2011 ART FESTIVAL

Dates: 14 – 21 FEBRUARY 2011

PAPAY GYRO NIGHTS 2011
1ST INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY ART FESTIVAL
EXPERIMENTAL FILM, VIDEO, INSTALLATION, PAINTING, MUSIC AND ARCHITECTURE

After eight days of the first PAPAY GYRO NIGHTS, which took place around the first full moon of February as it used to be from old ancient times on our island, we can say our ancestors were bunch of mad, fun loving people. The worst weather is coming to Orkney in February – the gale which will rip you off the ground and will lift a coo into the air; the sea which will smash any brave boat to pieces and will feed the crew to sea monsters, and you will get so fed up with winter darkness that no any member of your family will stop you to venture into the night and search for gyros or to turn into one.
After eight days we can say for sure – madness pays, as the next day after Gyro Nights were finished spring came to Papay, as ancestors promised, the sun was shining and all faces were happier…
