venue tbc (register to find out)nanopolitics presents – technoshamanist performance ritualfacilitated by Fabiane Borges and Camila Mello, with the participation of Phill JonesThis workshop aims at producing a photo-story through performance and ritualistic processes. A photonovel will be built from the biographies of the participants and through multimedia. We let technology speak with our memories and sensations. What do rituals mean to us? Since childhood, what rituals did we perform and participate in, what did we hate, how was the space of spiritual conection with nature in our lives.. with drugs.. with gods.. sacrifices.. dances..
The basic elements for this ritual will emerge from a suitcase, filled by us. We will bring the objects for our ritual/s: fabrics, candles, incenses, smells, musicals instruments, djimbe, fancy dresses/clothes, jewels, letters, old mobile phones, wigs, sex toys, cigarettes, books, make up, whatever we may want to use in the conception of characters and the creation of the respective script.Please bring four important things:
1- elements for the suitcase/ritual;
2- elements of autobiography (in the form of thoughts about your lives this far)
3- musical instruments for the procession
4- something to eat or drinkThe images will be shown in the very day of the workshop followed by a discussion about the final product (and a picnic).
