The Ritual begins before it starts.

Via050902.jpg (22737 bytes)

It begins at a different moment for each of us.

It’s like making love with a new person;
you have to find this particular rhythm, this particular night.

Via050903.jpg (20068 bytes)

Via050904.jpg (53283 bytes)

Via050905.jpg (20702 bytes)

For some, the beginning involves the costume and the mask.

For others it’s claiming the space; walking the perimeter, focusing.
Lighting candles.
Welcoming guests.

Via050906.jpg (22448 bytes)

Via050907.jpg (35860 bytes)

All with a sense of something coming. Vaguely dreading its arrival.

Via050908.jpg (50273 bytes)

Via050909.jpg (24633 bytes)

This night there is a play of opposites;
mirror images.

Disquieting videos,
disquieting loud music present throughout.

Via050910.jpg (18129 bytes)

Via050911.jpg (18205 bytes)

Energy pulled into space.

Played with, amplified.

Via050912.jpg (49925 bytes)

Identities fused.

Masculine and feminine integrated.

Via050913.jpg (91590 bytes)


Via050914.jpg (62286 bytes)

Transfers of substance, increase in energy.

Via050915.jpg (17627 bytes)

Via050916.jpg (21531 bytes)

Music as fuel, people as keys unlocking space.

Convulsive movements.

Via050917.jpg (18033 bytes)

Via050918.jpg (18700 bytes)

Forgetting of self and lack of sensation in the physical body,
all normal in this place.

Via050919.jpg (62955 bytes)

Out of bodies and through doorways of opportunity.

Via050920.jpg (51193 bytes)

Opportunities to push through your own barriers.

Via050921.jpg (55218 bytes)

Opportunities to connect on an essential level.

Via050922.jpg (49465 bytes)

Opportunities missed... or misperceived.

Via050923.jpg (42517 bytes)

Alone, out of place, out of time, out of luck.
Not fully part, not fully separate.
Not even able to get off the floor.

Via050924.jpg (17924 bytes)

Via050925.jpg (68350 bytes)

Until Koyote helps you dance.

Via050926.jpg (20854 bytes)

Dancing mask to mask; disconnected again,
horrified by what’s happening in the room.

Very sexual. People acting out.

Via050927.jpg (32606 bytes)

Via050928.jpg (23794 bytes)

Close your eyes.
What is happening?
In your head?
In the space?
Make yourself look.

Horror to rapture in the blink of another’s eye.

Via050929.jpg (19001 bytes)

Via050930.jpg (17771 bytes)

Constant dancing, bursting heart, crazy bliss.

Then fear again. So fast, one emotion to another.
What is happening now? In your head? In the space?

Via050931.jpg (17515 bytes)

Via050932.jpg (23503 bytes)

Brutal assault on a helpless woman,
or woman feeling her own power in her own space?

Via050933.jpg (71369 bytes)

As ecstatic as she had been is as upset as she is now.

Floor woman is oblivious to the drama.

Via050934.jpg (18564 bytes)

Via050935.jpg (19721 bytes)

Floor woman is fine.

Via050936.jpg (65851 bytes)

Ecstasy replaces terror and anger.
Her heart catches fire again
and stays on fire for the rest of the night.

Via050937.jpg (62275 bytes)

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a brain.

Via050938.jpg (18402 bytes)

Via050939.jpg (29522 bytes)

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have nerves and muscles and skin.

Via050940.jpg (67570 bytes)

You have a skeleton.

Via050941.jpg (43667 bytes)

Make it dance on its own grave...

Via050942.jpg (36690 bytes)

always aware of the other skeletons in the space...

Via050943.jpg (72094 bytes)

aware of your part and their part in the Solar Circus...

Via050944.jpg (112963 bytes)

where Koyote helps you dance.

Via050945.jpg (50121 bytes)
