Program Description

Methodology: Each artist will interrogate the subject of "remembering" immersing in The Rabbit Hole Method™, a process of inquiry that extracts and distills from contemporary artistic practises, philosophy, mysticism, mathematics and dance. It includes the teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan, Farid Ud-Din Attar, Jorge Luis Borges, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Lewis Carroll, among others. The rabbit hole seeks to stimulate new ideas about the self and the other, and to challenge culturally constructed limits and borders. Under careful advisory from Georgetown University, and the MIT Senselab, the program bases its principles on deconstruction, and the reinvention of rituals and forms. We also work with Teatro de los Sentidos, based in Barcelona, an immersive theatre company that creates experiences deconstructing what has become our pre-supposed sensory mapping, and instead discovering the magical silver thread that presents itself, if one is open to “remembering”.
