Far A Day Cage | Switzerland


Cities are on the rise: but so is the forest. The surface area of the Swiss forest has in- creased by over five percent over the past fifteen years. And the more urban the lifestyle, the more there is a longing for the original. The group Far A Day Cage has lived and rehearsed for several weeks in the most “original” site in Switzerland: In Bödmerenwald, the largest primeval forest of the Alps. From the confrontation with nature, with existential needs and fears, a piece emerges in the midst of the city. Far A Day Cage takes us on a trip to the origins of the future of our civilization.
