We are closing off 2018 with a selection of recent performances from our Silence Was Golden project. These golden balloons were blown up loosely around the Silk Road, including some of the most remote locations in Central Asia, such as the desert of Turkmenistan and other rugged and sparsely populated spots in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.
Up until now, Silence Was Golden was performed 382 times in 288 cities in 95 countries.
Get in touch if you like to be involved.
See you in 2019!
