Sat 11 November 2023 (19:00-22:00)
Welcome for the launch of ROT ISSUE ONE: IMMUNITY, edited by Sara Manente (Varamo Press, 2023).
ROT is the catalogue for a community of practices. ROT is a medicine and a ritual. The prescription for a new therapy. ROT is a manual without instructions. A map. A party. ROT touches upon sci-fi doomed scenarios. ROT works within the ruins of the future. ROT engages in weird beautification processes. ROT uses mushrooming as a research method. ROT hosts essays, stories, poetry, interviews, visuals, recipes, horoscopes and more. ROT is mouldy.
The launch will be preceded by a finissage as n0dine at 17:00. More info here.

About Step into the Limelight
Step into the Limelight is a participatory performance and workshop by The Anastasia Method. A series of language and body language sessions drawn from traditions of Reflexology, Kundalini Yoga, Pilates, Acupressure and more. The Anastasia Method uses an allegorical anatomical lexicon to address human physiology. The myoskeletal system, vital organs and energetic vortexes are used in this version breathing, scenting and massage exercises to activate the energy upwards, through the seven main points of the Anastasia Method. The fruits help participants feel their Inspiration Point, activate their Talent Point, open their Emancipation Point, access their Liberation Point, spin their Creation Point, see through their Superior Imagination Point. And through their Radical Acceleration Point shoot up their shine, like a volcano stepping into the spotlight.
