The Ponderosa Tanzland festival is but a couple of short weeks away! And the first week of the festival (13.–19. August) will orbit around evening rituals, presented each day by a sparkling troupe of visiting diabolists, enchantresses, and seers, including Keith Hennessy, Benoît Lachambre, Stephanie Maher, Marc Lohr, Maria F. Scaroni, and more — happening each day from 7pm until late.
What kind of rituals, we hear you plaintively ask? Well, we have no idea, but a glance at the historical record might whet your refined appetites. 💥
In 2017, Keith Hennessy presented a drag-opera-funeral-yoga-exorcism ritual, as part of the Ponderosa performance marathon. It was a dramatisation of loss, reimagining life-jackets used by refugees collected from the outer borders of the EU as talismans of exhausted rage. Take a look at an excerpt here, and make sure to also take a look at all the details about the whole festival, outlined on the website, it’s just a shot away, just a shot away from you via the link in the bio... #art #performance #ritual #ponderosa #stolzenhagen #berlin #festival #summer #tanzland #dance #movement #circozero #keithhennessy #invocation #drag #opera #yoga #funeral #exorcism
