“Superspace for Superheroes” is a first PLAY-event open to brighter audience. The genre of presented cultural game is a mixture of a concert, an art performance and an exhibition. Presented program oscillates between disciplines - the music dissolves in theatre, photography is inspired by performers playing with fire, theatre performance resembles modern “Singspiel”, and between aesthetics - classic is mixed with jazz and pop, “composed” alternates with “improvised”. What is in all that diversity in common? Unifying is being true and honest to ourselves in the creation - all involved in PLAY platform culture activists share common values of serving to the audience highest quality works, bringing culture to society in playful manner, being open for interaction with each other and with audience. Culture when is made with truthful service to humanity and with care on high quality will remain in interaction with society. Such a culture is not a luxury, but a necessity, and is made by superheroes.

“Play on fire” is a series of photographies by Anirudh Rajdev Krishnadas (ARKANDOZ) commissioned by PLAY platform. The series features fire as a playful but as well demonic element of human life - fire may turn life into real magic or might turn it into ashes. Fire used with understanding and in conscious way enlightens mind and soul, when used mindlessly and without protection may be destructive and may burn the eyes. Life should be the preservation of fire, not worshipping the ashes. The photoshoot took place on the 7th May 2015 at the secret location near Frankfurt.
