8 GATES & Protea in Oakland Tues 10-6

October 4th, 2009 (11:04 pm)
current mood: artistic

'8 Gates' -A Metamorphic Ritual Theatre Production. Part play, part shamanic underworld journey, concerning past lives, atavistic resurgence, mists, ravens and the density of matter.

Using hypnotic repetition and hceeps sdrowkcab Orryelle begins by taking the audience/initiates into trance and guiding them through a path-working to access past lives.
He then cuts to dramatically relating some of his own experiences with this journey-work, choreographing this tale onto a spider-web mandala used to ritually access 8 Gates of experience.

Shards and fragments of different lives and selves (inc. a Norse viking, a sabretooth tiger and a fly agaric mushroom) eventually link back up in a complex mosaic of non-linear relativity resolved in a paradox of profound absurdity/ absurd profundity.

Plus SF's PROTEA (me): - Serena Toxicat's thorny, sharp-clawed, 21st century brainchild.
An intensely personal, dark experimental project, its manifestation into form has come about through technologies of varying strata, from low budget to high end, and has never included any stock loops or sounds, rather soundscapes crafted from found aural sources.
A priestess of Bast, Sekhmet and Isinephthys ordained in the Fellowship of Isis at Isis Oasis temple and ocelot sanctuary, Serena
celebrates the Ancient Egyptian pantheon with gnosis and devotion in a matrix of ether and artful "noise".
For this performance Serena will present material from her new CD 'Going Forth by Night' with thereminist Joseph Max, ntula providing electronic support, and Orryelle on violin.

Orryelle will also be performing some of his own recent musickal material from his 'rehctaWatcher' CD with related Egyptian themes and Protea's collaboration.

Sa Sakhem Sahu. Ama Iset. Em hotep. Mau Bast! Mau Bast! Mau Bast!

$10 at the door (or presale via www.crossroads.wild.net.au/morph.htm)
