2015 theme : Performance and Possession
Post-modernism seems to have stalled in self-possession. Deconstruction rarely flies off the rational handle. Even poetic or ironic, it stays cool. "It takes shamanistic moves to elude the Western rational mind." (James Hillman.) Now we have Peter Kingsley's shamanic stunning proposals (check him up!) We must call on voices that venture beyond self-composure and self-expression. Hence: The art of flying off the rational and self-centred handle - with voice, music and (e)motion. The art of taking the lid off the meanings and enactments of texts.
