The Spiral of Fortune (7 of Birds)
A laboratory of political witchcraft
A week of dance divination, queer becoming, healing from political harm, and collaborative world-making, where world-making manifests as post/de-colonial choreography, magic, healing, activism, discourse, and ritual. Keith Hennessy und Michael Morris offer a week-long intensive laboratory, a politicised mystery school, in an expansive field where the politics of the land meet the politics of the body and potential is everywhere. Tarot, fake and real healing, death practice, dancing together and alone, negotiating difference, in an on-going studio practice of shared play, research, and performance. We'll make experiences and relationships in a vibrant real time composition that resonates in non-linear frequencies with the past, the future, and the timeless. We'll situate our studio in the crisis of power and empowerment destabilised by an era of both privilege and dispossession, economic and environmental precarity.
The Political Witchcraft Lab is a poetic (witch) and practical (craft) engagement with art and ritual in response to political harm. This lab will circle particular themes and questions — some explicit, some intuitive.
Tarot reader Rachel Pollack interprets the Spiral of Fortune as a gateway to breaking out of old patterns, the change that liberates, and gaining a wider vision. Pollack interprets the 7 of Birds as a call to good communication and negotiation, cooperation with respect to difference, and using your voice or body to claim space for culture, community, change.
