The cermony was my final thesis at the Art University theatre academy’s Directing department. I wanted to research the border between the real and the magical as well as the dramatic character and stripped down present self. The cermony was made for the purpose of retrieving powers from beyond, the inner world to manifest a positive transformation in our outer world. We worked with the physicality and movement material inspired by the qualities of the five elements and with monologues that was part of my written thesis.
The participants unerwent cleansing in all the different elements that was retrieved as a collective sacrifice. In the end there was a person in trance who journeyd into the spirit world where she met a creature of empowerment that she brought with her out and this was danced and sung out into the world in the end.
The Sacrifice -120 min cermony with movement material, written monolog, improvised material, dance and song.
