MA : REFLECTIONS CICLIQUES ET RITUELLES

2nd INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM PERFORMANCE PHILOSOPHY II. NATIONAL MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART, ATHENS 2017

 organised by Stella Dimitrakopoulou & Alexia Mylona

 

 

The introduction of my presentation had a theoretical approach on the theme of rituals. -The philosophical concept of ‘’Ma’’ ,the consciousness of space in Japanese and the way this concept is related to rituals , dance and visual artistic expression.- Application of rituals in everyday life and their impact on human awareness-Liminal states and  the personal and collective transformation through the processes- Ritual in performance and performance as ritual.

The second part consisted of photos and videos presenting how rituals have informed and inspired my artistic practice throughout the period of twelve years. I referred to my research travels, projecting exerpts of the documentary Colombia with the Shamans, and videos of other ritualistic performances where I use sculptures, dance, traditional polyphonic songs, free vocals and improvisations, quoting the process from experience to materialization.
