“A heavy tedium at the very beginning followed by confusion among the people of the audience. Loads of bananas carried by artists entering the yard. A big inflatable Berlin Wall. An inflatable Africa. An inflatable cathedral. All of this floating in the air.
The opening ceremony as an emotive and spectacular event acts as a reminder that we should all together say “yes” to bananas, but not at any cost.
Squeezing of the bananas in the spirit of (…) .Embodying the ecstatic turbulence in the gushes of the banana shake to announce officially: The festival is now open. Let the Banana be within you.”
