Medzotermina, in the language of ancient Croatian sailors, meant the place between places, the island in the middle of everything. The group involving composers, performers and visual artists is set to explore the different ways in which humans interact with the environment and themselves and how they affect the agriculture, nature and society. Cres and Naxos, who share some similarities in agriculture, touristification of the Mediterranean, history of various cultures… are to be explored.
The final piece should be an interactive installation, involving the three artists both as musical and light performers and makers and involving the audience in the process.
