Alkistis Dimech: Invocation Workshop

Alkistis will be leading our workshop on Invocation in the Avalon Club at 4.00pm.

About Alkistis Dimech:

Alkistis is a dancer, choreographer, artist and writer, whose practice is principally grounded in the Ankoku Butoh of Hijikata Tatsumi, a discipline she has trained in and performed since 2002. She works as a solo performer, blending choreography with improvisation. During a hiatus from public performance between 2007 and 2011, her work was focused on closed actions and rituals, working with the land and spirit of place, and its relation to the interior landscape, the imaginal, and the corporeal presence of the body.

More details can be found at her performance and art website, or the website for Scarlet Imprint, which she is co-founder of with Peter Grey.

Workshop: The God in the Body

Alkistis writes here: "I will be giving a workshop entitled ‘The God in the Body’ at the 2015 Occult Conference in Glastonbury on 21st March. The workshop will begin with a brief introduction to the occult anatomy, as I define it and as distilled through my practice of butoh, witchcraft and magic. A 90 minute practical class will explore the core principles of ‘the magical body,’ so that participants can develop both a theoretical and experiential understanding of this foundational work."
