Each year, 60,000 global participants gather in a windswept Nevada desert to build a temporary city, create large-scale art, and party for a week before burning a giant effigy in a ritual frenzy. The Burning Man festival famously encourages its participants to shed their nine-to-five existence and act on their dreams. But, as SPARK follows a year of unprecedented challenges and growth within the event, changes are taking place. When ideals of a new world collide with realities of the “default world,” which dreams will survive? (JR)
