Exhausting the Body (Performance “DivO” on the 13th of July)

You are invited to 48 hours of

Ritual + Performance + Art

To reach the exhaustion of the body is a desire that can be found throughout the ages in forms of various rites and rituals. We push our body to its limit with excessive movement (dance, sport) or by not moving at all (meditation, bondage), opening our skin, hanging from hooks, suffocation or the simple act of screaming

When we push our bodies to edge we reach sense of freedom, we find ourselves within new states of awareness.

Exhaustion is internal silence
Exhaustion is freedom from thought
Exhaustion is the gift of clarity
Exhaustion is the key to trance
Exhaustion is a key to the subconscious
Exhaustion is the purity of primal wisdom

Our society has a very superficial relationship to the human body. First we separate the body from the mind and then we only focus on the body’s surface. This is why a little cut on the skin is culturally more alarming then the poisoning of our food and minds.

EXHAUSTING BODY is an invitation to witness the beautiful side of pushing the body to its limit. We like to share the ecstasy of trance with you. As a human collective we have lost the connection to ourselves. Ritual can open this link again.
