HYENAZ are looking for interlocutors for our upcoming live experiences in the probability praxis series.
probability praxis is the series of 28 performances of the critical magic ritual. “praxis” is intentional practice of theoretical ideas, radical imaginings; this is our laboratory. We try to blog openly about our experiences and invite interlocutors and participants to do the same so that we can learn as we go. “probability” is an acknowledgement that transformation does not happen overnight, but that practicing our connection with others, questioning our acts of Othering and actively interrogating and deeply understanding our bodies in relation to other bodies helps to set in motion, increase the probability, for personal and political change.

Critical Magic 비평 적 마술 is based in contact, sound and movement to break physical and mental isolation and to spark discourse that is both critical and utopian. It is an electronic music performance as well as interactive ritual performance which grew out of the site specific performance “Spectral Rite” with Sylbee Kim and Nico Pelzer at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul in 2014.
It has since been performed as a full ritual around Europe, Canada, and Australia. We are looking for Interlocutors who will help be active participants to ensure an atmosphere of mutual respect and connection between ourselves (HYENAZ) as facilitators and the “audience” as participants. We will be dressed entirely in silver body paint, topless, with shorties/panties/ropes/plasticskirts on. Interlocutors are free to do the same, or to wear whatever makes you feel comfortable and powerful.
No previous rehearsal or experience is required, we welcome all bodies. Your curiosity and eagerness is most important. looking forward to meeting you.
