Lateral means to a dramatic end, the task-based and durational work of Privattheater, Whwymgb, Pecu, and Opæan defined a coherent solo project, providing the material and direction for my consequent collaborations. Crucially, I could initiate and lead Psychological Art Circus in making a distinct body of combinatory performance guided by the lives of three seers, Anna O., Olive Pixley, and in Illusions of Reference, the Oracle, Pythia.
After Illusions, I began to uncover the conceptual framework for a new Psychological Art Circus based on the life and art of Mallorcan mystic Guillem Fanaler. The results of this research—sonic, visual, and systematised—will be further developed in hybrid live work The Coincidence of A.
