The cosmologist Carl Sagan once reminded us, "National boundaries are not evident when we view the Earth from space. Fanatical ethnic or religious or national chauvinisms are a little difficult to maintain when we see our planet as a fragile blue crescent fading to become an inconspicuous point of light against the bastion and citadel of the stars. Travel is broadening."
In Unicorn Meat's inaugural event at our new home in Brooklyn for one extraordinary night in New York City, we'll be celebrating this truth. Borders are erased, walls are collapsed, historical shackles are shattered as the best of the world as it is will be in rejoice in one place for one magnificent evening. This New Year's Eve we once again welcome you all to join us for The Wander.
Through dance, music, performance, light, sounds, and art from all corners of the globe, we'll transcend the pettiness of mankind's divisions and rise to a state of symphonic celebratory communion. Guided on this journey by none other than Rusko, you'll find life among the relics of history, and humankind's most modern marvels. Prepare yourself to circumnavigate our ceremonial circus of civilization best.
A great teacher once reminded us, "You are the world and the world is you." As you move from city to city and realize your connection to this planet, it's people, and our shared history. Share the mystic gaze within the Grand Gallery of Giza, the Zen of a Kyoto stone garden, the organized chaos of Istanbul's Great Bazaar. Moving onward you'll pass through the flowing streets of Venice, transcendent temples of Tenochtitlan, and walk amongst the spiraling citadels of the Kremlin. From the cobbled streets of Zurich, Switzerland to the Ziggurats of Iraq, to the cedar forests of Lebanon, the world is your stage for one night's wondrous walkabout.
As we allow the greatest our traditions to flow harmoniously together, we'll catalyze our creative energy to pour outward and onward through our city and beyond – using one night's journey into the past to inspiration untold possibilities of our shared future.
