infinity rug december 2023 artwork #1 (please rename syd :) - vincent

As we ride through waves of grief, we search for solace in collective vibration and attunement.

Join us for our next infinity rug, where familial and fresh threads will be woven together over a circadian cycle, to allow for a deep dive into a myriad of sound touches. Haptic to aural ripples, from the surface of the skin to the subconscious realm of dreams.

Bring your rug from home and join our rug constellation, for a collective practice of resonance, from sunset to sunrise.

Tickets available here.

Grateful to have the support of Berliner Projektfonds Urbane Praxis

There will be an opening window from 18h–20h in which you can arrive, and we will serve dinner during this time. After that, no late admissions will be accepted. We will have two spaces activated during the night. On the resonance floor, we wish to instigate a non-verbal spell as a way of exploring the myriad other ways in which we can attune with the sound and each other. Underground in the cave of murmurs, a space inhabited by playful entities throughout the night, it will be possible to speak verbally for those who wish to – sadly this lower space is not wheelchair accessible. Still, the rest of the space will be. We will have DSL interpreters during the dinner and initial welcome.

Accessibility

Communication and Sound The event will have a non-verbal focus. The event will have German Sign Language Interpretation. There will be a well-lit space for people to see the interpretation. We will mark a space for people to sit and feel stronger bass and low frequencies. Earplugs are available for free.

Access to Building SAVVY Contemporary is a ground floor building with a large toilet built for wheelchair use and several all-gender toilet stalls. The entrance and hallway doors on the first floor are 2,20m wide. The door to the bathroom is 95cm wide. infinity rug music will take place on the ground floor. Some elements of the performance will take place in the basement level, which is accessible only by stairs.

Accessibility

the cursed assembly

During this sonic seance we will draw inspiration from the concept of the seance, a word derived from the French, meaning 'to sit', or 'a session', referring to occasions where spiritualists would gather to commune with the deceased. During the late 1800's - early 1900's, seances enjoyed their peak of popularity before inevitably becoming associated with fraudulent activity. Recent resurgence in interest can be linked to New Age movements where adherents are more inclined to believe in the ability to raise the consciousness of all involved, rather than only of a select few occupying the role of a medium. It is in this vein that we hold our sonic seances.

We believe that through the sharing of particular frequencies, words, gestures and engaging in collective deep listening and dream practices we can collectively arrive at new realisations, new ways of being-together and relating with ourselves and others - in this realm and beyond.

Bring your rugs and join part of our infinite constellation tomorrow night at Arsenic. At midnight, we will begin to apply a soothing sonic balm, offering a moment for being-listening together as we gently dive into some ongoing thoughts around shame and insecurity, the usefulness of the closet and techniques of obfuscation, and our lack of resonance with the term pride.

We will open with a screening of Serge Garcia’s short film, Grand Central Hotel, made with the transgendered icon, Terre Thaemlitz. The short film is sparse in imagery yet abundant with ideas, leaving us with much to reflect upon as we dive together into a musical soundscape made for contemplation and introspection.

How might it feel to overcome shame? Who might i become if i clung less tightly to my identity? What would it feel like to feel grateful for this life - as it is, not how i wish it to be?

Behind layered veils of secrets Lays the potency of destruction and becoming May hard shells become cocoons Vulnerable spaces for metamorphosis

“Clarity is the ability to transform fear into trust, so that the situation can become more abundant by opening to others” – Mariana Nobre Vieira

A fog of concealment and hiding can also inadvertently become an opportunity for transformation and generation. We have been thinking together, particularly of queer shame and the byproducts that come from not living one's truth. Both western scientific and mindfulness-based practices agree that the first step to overcoming shame is acceptance and self-compassion. Self-love has been commodified in an attempt to sell us something to make us feel better about our compartmentalised existences, yet the first step to caring about ourselves isn’t found in a product, but in extending to ourselves the care and patience we might have for a friend. Without the desire to transform shame, we can unwittingly create shells in which we become trapped. As Buddhist scholar Bhikkhu Anālayo points out, “guilt is not useful. Not guilt, but taking responsibility. I'm here. Let me take my responsibility.” Being imperfect is something we all have in common, and in collectively acknowledging our flaws, our secrets, or our shame (verbally or not) we might be relieved of some of the burden of carrying its weight.

You are warmly invited to bring a rug and join Lou Drago and marum for our next sonic-seance where we can lay down and get cosy together.

Accessibility: The sonic seance will be hosted in English. Understanding English is not necessary to participate. The venue is wheelchair accessible There will be loud music, with low frequencies. Earplugs will be freely available. There won’t be strobe lights. There will be a smoke machine. The event will last about 2,5 hours If you bring your own carpet, please make sure that it is not too dusty and free of animal hair.
