Political Witchcraft For The Current Era

dancing medicine, consciousness raising, spell crafting

Macho xenophobia has gone viral (e.g. Austria Hungary USA Turkey Philippines Russia...) Capitalists make the world shitty and then blame it on the victims. And somehow they get people to support them, with a promise that we will be safe and our lives will have meaning while every day most people's lives become more precarious and all meaning (and wealth!) is sucked out. A weak democracy protects fascists until they take over. How to use dance class to respond? How do we develop cultures of consent where difference inspires rather than paralyzes? How can bodies and imaginations be decolonised and liberated? Can we channel a pre-capitalist body? Or speculate a post-capitalist choreography? Magic involves poetic and embodied action in a ritualised context to influence not only consciousness but material realities. The pretend influences the real. Working with dancing, somatics, tarot, spell crafting, dancing, choreographed and improvised action we will co-create a laboratory of activist magic.

We will read from: Witches, Midwives & Nurses (1973) by Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English, with support from Silvia Federici's Caliban & the Witch, and the tarot.
