This Ritual is not an Accident
A response to the slow motion accident we find ourselves in, This ritual alters reality with wind, gods, gangsters, seven keys and seven locks.
The evening begins as a performance, and ends as an experiment. Is it possible, we wonder, to respond to the massive collective violence we are witnessing, where living systems are collapsing and opulence and scarcity are peaking, at the level of urgency we would a fast-motion threat: a car crash, a fire, an attack? What is it about the slow-motion accident that escapes our defense response? We offer a ritual to reset our nervous systems collectively.
