Meet Aubrey Ireland, a college student at the University of Cincinnati in the US. She’s leading a pretty normal college life while studying music theater at the university. On top of that, she’s got a court ordered restraining order against her parents. Yes, her parents. Or, helicopter parents you might add.
Burning Man is an annual event held in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada, in the US. Tens of thousands of people gather to form the Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to self-expression, art, community and alternative life. The event begins on the last Monday in August and ends one week later, were the participants leave the site with no trace of a festival having taken place. The name of the festival comes from the ritual burning of a large wooden man (picture below) on Saturday evening.
