yonder? : You might get puzzled wondering what this gyonderh in Yonder Arts Party (YAP) is all about. Well, as you know, gyonderh is an adjective which initially means being at a more distant or farther location than here, or there. Technically it can refer to some place situated within a short walk. Still, it could imply the place is located rather far away. Yonder represents an enigmatic sense of distance. Somewhere you could reach if you try, yet full of unknowns, and definitely affecting this world in a certain way.

yonder artist? : Artists participating in YAP are called yonder artists. They are from all parts of the world and perform their acts relecting their own different backgrounds or viewpoints. They share one thing in common, though. They are incorporating their experience in the yonder world into their acts. Yonder world is in somewhere beyond. And it is where instant eternities and extinct dots can interweave once again. Yonder artists are going to tell us something about it; the place somewhat different from this world or that.

YAP? : You might find yonder artistsf existence or works too puzzling. But don't worry. Certain unknowns can cause a great deal of anxiety. The unknowns. YAP presents are far from those types. Rather contrary, you might want to recall YAP-kind unknowns at an unexpected moment, and quite often. And then all you do is simply sink in sense, scene and state of that moment, drifting away from all the others like time, age, nation or all kinds of frames. The whole thing could happen in an instant. However, the unknowns remain the same unknown state forever. When the moment and eternity meet, somewhere in nowhere emerges. Yonder world is where these moments are interwoven in bundles. And that quaint place is where yonder artists are holding YAP.

what is YAP for? : What we do in this world is more like practicing to face the unknowns YAP presents. This practice can eventually help us find a most significant way of life, something to inspire our imagination and awareness, and to make us more fit to survive in this limited life. As you might imagine, YAP prospectively acknowledges almost everything. Immerse yourself in these acknowledged unknowns, and youfll find a different new world. Somewhere in nowhere is just around the corner.
