“What is abundantly clear is that the witch hunts did not begin with witches, and are thus not avoided by making ourselves harmless or integrating and ingratiating ourselves with the corrupt systems of governance…Simply acting out the parody role which our enemies have scripted for us is not a solution…Yet when our enemy describes their fear to us with such eloquence, they reveal their weaknesses which we would be foolish not to exploit.”

“Love is an emotion with destroying power, careless of human happiness, social constraints and rational analysis.”

—   Peter Grey, The Red Goddess (via therosesign)

“The denial of the devil is a convenient fiction for those who would trade their power for a seat at the table with the very people whom witchcraft has always been recourse against.”

consider this: “in this image of the sabbath we distinguish two cultural currents, of diverse origin: on the one hand as elaborated by inquisitors and lay judges, the theme of a conspiracy plotted by a sect or hostile social group; on the other, elements of shamanic metamorphosis. But this juxtaposition is too schematic. The moment has come to acknowledge that the flow between the two lobes could have only been so firm and enduring in so far as there existed a substantial subterranean affinity between them.” -carlo ginzburg, ecstasies

Occulture in Norway


 
Scarlet Imprint will be speaking and performing at the Here to Go II conference in Trondheim Norway on Friday May 30 and Saturday May 31 as part of the Meta.morf  Biennale for Art and Technology.

Here To Go: Art, Counter-Culture and the Esoteric is an ongoing symposium and book series focusing on what has generally come to be known as «occulture», and contemporary artistic endeavors within the cultic milieu. The symposium presents internationally recognized scholars and artists from various artistic, adademic and esoteric backgrounds to shed new light on this often overlooked and misunderstood anti-movement.

On the Friday eve Alkistis Dimech will be giving a Butoh performance entitled Volant evoking the figure(s) of the ecstatic-demoniac-witch, the ‘woman in flight’. This piece will be accompanied by industrial music pioneer Z’EV.



Full line up for the evening event: http://metamorf.no/?p=604

20:00 PEOPLE LIKE US (UK)
21:30 Z´EV w/ ALKISTIS DIMECH (US/UK)
23:00 COTTON FEROX w/ ANGELA EDWARDS (SE/UK)


On the Saturday both Alkistis Dimech and Peter Grey will be giving presentations:

The Sabbatic Dance: Butoh’s interior landscape and the terrain of Witchcraft
Butoh is explicitly concerned with the body of flesh (nikutai) as the limen through which an interior realm is brought forth and revealed. This act of poïesis by the carnal body is analogous to the orgiastic dance of the witches, the core ritual expression in the mythos of the medieval sabbat. This talk will explore the common topography of Butoh and witchcraft as Alkistis has charted it in her magical and artistic praxis.

Secrecy and Revelation: A new vision of talismanic books
The book can function as an empowered magical object, but what is the process and purpose of creating such artifacts in a disenchanted culture?
Peter Grey lays out not a history, but a new vision of the talismanic book in a world obsessed with ideas of authenticity but bereft of meaning.

The full line-up for the day: http://metamorf.no/?p=602
