JOURNEY TO THE EAST (JTTE) - Scotland’s premiere performance art and contemporary culture festival which centres queer, PoC and East Asian artists and artforms - returns to Glasgow from 22-30 September!
JTTE Friday opening night live performances features a live art participatory dance-floor meditation ceremony from Berlin-based duo, Alvin Collantes and Ben Okamoto. Take flight and come together as one as the bodies move. Celebrate the divinity of drag. Reflect the elements into another's eyes and take a dose of pleasure as you swim in the sounds of love with guided dance-floor meditation, techno music, sound bath, kundalini activation and drag queens.
