The Dancer, the Drum & the Serpent
(Witchcraft, Cyborgs & Forms of Resistance)
Saturday September 22, from 4 - 6 pm
Sorte Firkant, Blågårdsgade 29
2200 Copenhagen N.

Join us September 22nd for a celebration of September equinox. When the Sun and the Earth align, and we pass from summer to winter or winter to summer (depending on our location on Earth). “The Dancer, the Drum & the Serpent” is an artistic program that explores the entanglement between witchcraft and cyborgs as forms of resistance to coloniality. In colonial times, dancing, drumming and spiritual practices were conceived of as witchcraft by the colonial rule. Drums were forbidden and destroyed while practitioners were burned as witches. But the dancer, the drum and the serpent move the cycles of seasons creating cracks and loopholes in the system. The event invites artists whose practice in different ways explores questions of how to restore or heal creative expression when the vital core has been cut off.
