Animals & Fire in collaboration with Transformer will present Lemuria : Performance Art Party at Black Whiskey on Saturday, November 2.
Lemuria: A Performance Art Party is an exhibition referencing the intersection of religious ritual and the rituals of bar, club and popular culture. The party is informed by the liturgy of All Souls Day and the mundane ceremonial practices of popular culture we engage in an effort to exorcise our demons.
We will explore popular rituals to include dance as exorcism, musical prayer, peer confessional, giving and receiving blessings, and filling oneself with the “spirit”. By using the bar as a temple we will endow the practices of Communion, Sacrament, Sacrifice, Forgiveness, Bestowing of Rites, and Evangelism in the venue’s customary light.
Open Call for Performances:
Animals & Fire is accepting performance art proposals for this event. There is minimal staging, spot lighting and access to a bar top available to the artists. The selected artists will receive an honorarium.
Please email submissions by Friday, October 25thto AnimalsAndFire@gmail.com
