Dionysos, the mythical protector of the wild, inspired Niezsche to coin the idea of ''Die Grosse Gesundheit'', in which a society welcomes evanescence, destruction, disgust, chaos, intense sexual drive, suffering, pain, death, fear and insecurity as desired qualities, in order the maintain the natural balance in life.
 
Performers Monique and Jessica van Deursen (a.k.a. Alter Moderna) invited a small audience to come receive a performative post-covid-19 cleanse. Visitors could 'book' a session at Witte Rook. In between and after the performances, the space could be visited as an exhibition.
