There is a place that human knowledge can never access. The horizon marks that boundary, but it’s also in here, in our body, psyche, biography and history. This evening focuses on the Horizon as a stretching, morphing boundary, exploring the connection of the unknown-out-there, and in the unknown-in-here. A night to talk about the things we know we will never know.
