WHAT IS TECHNOSHAMANISM???

Technology + shamanism = 3 things (and more):

1) Technology of shamanism: practices of cure, traditional medicines, history telling, knowledge of rituals, connection with ancestrally (collective memory).

2) Shamanism of technology: all the effort the science does to accomplish the ideals of shamanism: interspecific communication, space/time journeys, genetic mutation. 

3) Connection between two knowledges, historically separated for monotheistic principles: metaphysics of matter, subjectivity of the elements, and connection with the cosmos.

All of this is an abstraction, but there are groups which are taking it seriously with research production, artistic proposals, creative technologies, involvement with tribal communities, ecstasy techniques, thought intensification, creation of technological alternatives based on local needs, rescue of scientific and technological futures wasted by modernity, among many others things.

This event in London will be a challenge:

– Co-create a space/time with theoretical and practical proposals of health // (cure/healing)

The idea is to share practices using technologies and ancestral proposals like sound, listening, dancing, ritual practices, brain reading, virtual reality, electromagnetic experiences, and at the same time, bringing ideas for discussions around biological war, future of colonization x anti colonization dispute, relationship with ancestral nations, modern and ancestral ways to cure and health , among other things.

WHY ARE WE BRINGING THE SUBJECT OF “ANCESTORFUTURISM HEALTH AND CURE” IN A MEETING OF TECHNOSHAMANISM IN LONDON?

Because we need to help an indigenous village in Brazil right now, who are asking for health! They asked the technoshamanism network to help them to make a TASK- FORCE for health. They want to build collectively a “HEALTH CLINIC” that gathers medicinal knowledge from both technologies: modern and ancestral. It looks easy, but it is not. To make it, we need an intelligent community operating together.

To build in an indigenous village we need to consider all their common problems as: – Lack of money.

– Lack of medical care.

– Problems with the current government in Brazil that wants to take off their land and have just removed many of their health rights.

– Excess of food with pesticides.

– Sugar and sausages that are causing a lot of health consequences.

– Epidemics due to deforestation and monoculture plantation around the village.

We want to raise gradual awareness that only the ancestral medicine does not guarantee the health of the village population, being necessary to expand their health techniques and healing, this includes strengthening health in the white model, but also their own model, including attending not indigenous people who wanted to learn other healing methods, making these care also an economical way to survive.

The challenge is how they can have health care without lose their own principles of ancestral medicine knowledge.

It was always a complexity for indigenous population survive the colonization, but at this moment they have a very specific fight with the Brazilian government, who things they have to stop with this indigenous dream, and just be poor, like the rest of the people.

WHAT I HAVE TO DO WITH THE SURVIVAL OF THE INDIGENOUS POPULATIONS IN BRAZIL?

1) Diversity of Population Cultures!

2) Multiplicity of perspectives about the world!

3) Keep forests alive and leafy, as indigenous people often do.

4) Trying to prevent colonization from advancing further on these peoples.

Because you love challenges, and want to visit the Health Centre when it is done, in a long trip to the Pataxó village in Aldeia Pará in South of Bahia in Brazil. This population was one of the first people to face colonizers when they came to Brazil, and they survived!

Because what is happening in Brazil now is the extreme fight against the native people – and one of the first actions of this new government was cut the health of the communities, finishing an incredible project MORE DOCTORS PROGRAM, and also finishing with the indigenous health programs.

This event in London will be  a challenge: co-create a space/time with theoretical and practical  proposals of health (cure/healing)! The idea is to share practices using technologies and ancestrals proposals like sound,  listening, dancing, ritual practices, brain reading, virtual reality, electromagnetic experiences, and at the same time, bringing ideas for discussions around biological war, future of colonization x anti colonization dispute, relationship with ancestral nations, modern and ancestral ways to cure and health, among other things.

Performance

Neo Fung & Mutanta
Performance
Cabra-Macho.
By embodying the rituality of traditional Crafts, the performers enact intense corporeal relations in order to explore the vulnerabilities of masculine archetypes in Latin and Western culture, as well as expose our exploitative relations to vegetative life forms. Moreover, all the props and outfits for the show were created by Mutanta as part of her research and collaborative project over the past year with local communities of Artisans in northern Brasil. Neo Fung is Cabra-Macho, Cabrón: the archetype of masculine courage and strength braving Brazil’s semi-arid region. He wears bestial hooves & leather pieces referencing designs of Brazilian farmers. Mutanta is a tropical plant from Amazon jungle. She is tangled with ropes initially immobilizing her body into a form of vegetative life. She has huge antlers coming from in-between her legs. Her hands are free to weave patterns onto the antlers & rope-tentacle extensions.

KIMATICA STUDIO
Video TRANSCENDENCE by Kimatica
Transcendence is a multidisciplinary practice-based research,
exploring how live performance art in combination with interactive
technology can induce altered states of consciousness. A multi-
sensory experience taking its audience onto an immersive journey
through the subconscious mind by manipulation perception through contemporary mediums.
’We always say that with Kimatica we actually do portals. We make
experiences that give access to other realities. I am very
inspired by shamanism. The mission of the artist is the same as
that of the shaman –that of a healer. And at the same time that of
a revolutionary who dares to subvert the status quo.’

KATYA KAN
Video The Technology of Becoming
Finalist at the Flicks Film Festival in London 2019, this animation presents a spiritual mantra of positive transformation for the artist in discovering her esoteric white witch powers. It consists of HD video in combination of 300 2D stop motion animation frames, carefully and craftily hand drawn by the artist herself.

ISNT’SES
Isn’tses is a collaboration between visual/electronic artist and musician Lisa McKendrick (Listen Lisse) and animator and electronic artist Tim Drage (Cementimental). The duo perform wearing costumes and masks in conjunction with live video projections and illuminated props. They deliver a spontaneous and improvised performance using theatrical style interaction with their self-built synths, noise boxes, circuit bent toys and vocals. Their music conjures themes such as paganism, freedom of speech, freedom of sound, intergalactic heroism and a playful interpretation of popular culture.
