The Bliss of New Eyes

Orryelle Defenestrate Bascule and Melissa Artemis Shemanna, visionary artists of the exhibition, Oneiropraxis, invite you to a unique evening of art and performance.

Oneiromantic journeys and Visionary epiphanies consolidate to OneiroPraxis, as winged eye alights in the painters’ hands

Dionysian Ecstasy from Visual & Vibrational Intoxication

With oration, poetry, violin and voice (through loops and FX), this presentation by Orryelle veers from talk into performancy with song and butoh dance, also incorporating film.

An exploration of the magic of language, the mysteries of the serpent and sundering of the head from pineal activation through visual or sonic focus. As the veils grow thin for Samhain (old pagan name of Halloween), death and dream are considered as portals betwixt the realms. 

The Hermetic and Orphic Mysteries re-converge with the Dionysian Mysteries in paroxysms of bliss.

MythOneiric Gateways

Melissa Shemanna offers a guided creative visualisation across the threshold of conscious awareness into Oneiric Portals to reclaim (inter)personal dreaming and ignite the living myth.
