Each evening will consist of various performances—from time-based works, to technology-driven, and interactive pieces. Wednesday night, July 7th, Portland-based artist, Tabitha Nikolai will present The Adyton Nail Salon, a participatory divination through glamour; audience members are invited to receive a water-marbled manicure from which their fortune is told in a process akin to reading tea leaves, or candle magic. On Friday night, July 9th, New Delhi-based artist, B. Ajay Sharma’s performance questions the state of India’s contemporary politics and culture. Sharma’s performance combines ancient Indian rituals and yogic practices in order to address India’s cultural discourse. Local artist, Shelby Burchett will perform as her alter-ego, Goo-Witch, utilizing science and rituals to transcend audiences towards a ghostly, other-worldly realm.
