Voodoo Dances

On June 13 2009 we did the first of an expected Voodoo streaming series. Voodoo is a West African word meaning ‘spirit’. The basic ethos of the religion is that everything in the universe is connected. Nothing happens by chance in this world, and there are no accidents. Everything that you do to one person you are doing to yourself, because you are that person.

Maybe that intriguing concept is useful to exorcize the NAM (Nederlandse Aarolie Maatschappij). Maybe we can stop this whole crazy gas drilling idea, right on a beautiful island full of art and nature. We know that there will be subsidence, the scientists are disputing about the exact amount, the intertidal mud flats are lowering and the dynamic system is supposed to compensate… and if not, the government has “de hand aan de kraan” (the hand on the tap) as they called their idiotic political compromise.

How shall the industrial development of this heaven on earth affects the future visitor, a visitor that is increasingly well informed and keen on getting maximum relaxation in their spare time? Ameland is not the only island on earth, remember people have broad options.
