A psycho-physical, primordial trance ritual performance and open workshop.

Two dancers, Tony Yap e Jack Riley, with a 40-year age difference, come together to showcase striking contrasts and surprising similarities. These contrasts arise from differences in age, traditional cultures, and dance styles, whilst their similarities lie in their shared intensity-focused aesthetics and involvement in queer sub-cultures.

The performance of Animalising delves into the themes of sexlessness and nakedness, combining them with a captivating trance-like intensity. Back from shamanistic bull-trance rituals in East Java, Indonesia, the dancers draw out their animalistic natures into states of possession.

Mas Agus Riyanto is the supreme trance-master, inducing the dancers into trance zones as he whips, and they morph to become animals, intense and imperceptible. Additionally, Reuben Lewis spells the ritual by creating and composing a third element, developing the sonic-choreographic trance-scape.

Please note, this event includes nudity and intermittent loud sounds. Not suitable for children.

 

Opening Ritual

Agus Riyanto, a Javanese bull-trance shaman, has created a ritual that evokes benevolent spirits/energies. The ritual invites everyone to participate and converge for spiritual well-being at the Abbotsford Convent.

About the Workshop
This trance workshop is an introduction to an ecstatic trance practice of Bantengan — Bull Trance Rituals — in Indonesia. Through reframing and reimagining the traditional form, we explore the intensity of the transformative experiences of becoming animal, becoming intense and becoming imperceptible.
