@dreampr00fx presents MEMORY ENCHANTMENT on Friday, August 23 - Internaut Day - to celebrate the anniversary of the World Wide Web >>>
Our embodied experiences have transformed from digital techno-ecologies. Thumb-scrolling & finger-thinking, whether as mobile phone or computer users, our bodies have adapted accordingly. While wires & wifi help us communicate across planet earth, how do we keep in touch with our own bodies? @dreampr00fx conjures an evening of MEMORY ENCHANTMENT to re-member the body as techno-ecology. Offerings include Cyborg Yoga, medicinal elixirs (blueberry juice / peppermint matcha / butterfly pea brew & more), video art & altar installation for asdfhjkl; (godlord of internet) by the CosmiKnots (@theparhelia & @kkdelavida), a punk ritual by @brujaluna & more.
“[In] our time, a mythic time, we are all chimeras, theorized and fabricated hybrids of machine and organism; in short, we are cyborgs… A cyborg is a cybernetic organism, a creature of social reality, as well as a creature of fiction… Technology is not neutral. We're inside of what we make, and it's inside of us. We're living in a world of connections — and it matters which ones get made and unmade." - Donna J. Haraway /// Cyborg Yoga activates practices of hatha yoga, kundalini yoga, asana, pranayama, somatic movement & yoga nidra to release excess stress accumulated from daily digital activity. Through 60-minutes of embodied flow, we re-program & re-circuit our cyborg selves/cells, cultivating an inner strength & serenity at our root core, so we may confidently continue to transform the world around us.
Energy exchange is $10-15 +/or fruit to share. No one will be turned away for lack of funds or fruit. Bring your own yoga mat, or let us know (24 hours in advance) if you need one to borrow. Cyborg Yoga offering is capped at 23 participants. After 8pm, entry is $5-$10 sliding scale donation for elixir drink + ritual performances.
