They say folks that can manage big things never can manage little ones.
A proper fairy tale told by a narrating princess.
A handheld dinosaur speaks prophetic wisdom.
A mesmerizing adventure video uncovers ancient truths. You'll see it all in: Once upon.

Bar Kalashnikov / Cats

...Informal setting makes sense and 'skipping' the institutional is very interesting anyway. So I would inhabit the space and perform in it and host the Kalashnikov bar. Maybe bar even each day? and would be happy to MC & play mixes (postcolonial) too? Kalashnikov is a drink with vodka, lemon and chocolate. ...and maybe other activities? Autodomestication cat stickers installation.
