Performance Art.

Postby Markjones » 23 Sep 2015, 15:08

Hi there, first post!

I have today signed up to the OBOD, and am looking forward to receiving my first lessons. In the mean time I was wondering if and how other people have integrated performance art into their Druidry. Obviously story telling is considered a performance art, and I do intend to work on this, but many years ago I was a street performer/juggler. Has anyone else practiced these arts as part of their Druidry?

Regards

Mark

I danced for many years with a non-professional performance troupe of Irish Ceili Dancers and loved it. When some diddly-dee music comes on I still break out into some of the steps. And I have a concertina and a tin whistle, and played for many years in Irish music sessions, although now playing only at home as I lack the time for the continuous need to practise.

I can't say I am currently a story teller, though that doesn't stop me having a go! It is something I intend to work on, but the idea of integrating this with other forms of performance art interests me.

I love the idea of ‘sacred juggling’. It would be an excellent moving meditation and one would have to be absolutely ‘in the now’, concentrating, totally at home in one’s body, self and place.

But what to juggle? Menhirs?

I only ask because story telling and other forms of performance art are good skills to have if you 're thinking of attending a circle/ritual/gathering. Around the bonfire is a great place to be for the eisteddfod section of any celebration :warm:
