From Ritual to Circus

Lateral means to a dramatic end, the original task-based perform­ances, Privattheater, Wh­w­y­m­g­b, Pecu, and Opæan, formed a sur­prisingly coherent solo project to provide material and direction for my consequent collaborations. Notably, I would lead the company Psychological Art Circus to make a distinct body of inter­disciplinary work guided by the texts of three seers, Anna O., Olive Pixley, and, in Illusions of Reference, the Oracle, Pythia.

Following Illusions, I began to devise a new conceptual frame­work for creation based on an idio­syncratic reading of the life and art of Ramon Llull. The results of this research - visual, sonic, and pro­gram­matic - are el­abor­ated on in live work The Coincidence of All.
