Israel’s Burning Man

Tue, Jun 10, 2014 (3:38 p.m.)

The festival is modeled after the popular Burning Man festival held annually in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. Some 3,000 people set up a colorful encampment in the dusty moonscape, swinging from hoops by day and burning giant wooden sculptures by night. At the end, participants were told to remove their own trash and leave the desert without a trace. For five days, participants, mostly Israelis, created a temporary city dedicated to creativity, communal living, and what the festival calls “iradical self-expression.”
