At the end of the year and the dawn of the new decade we invite you to a selection of ritualistic performances by queer artists who use spirituality, shamanism and witchcraft as part of their work. The event follows a storyline of death and rebirth including stillness, vocalization, ecstatic dance, exorcism, healing, matrimony and Tarot reading, among other practices.
