Doors 8:30pm, Show 9:00pm
@ Holocene, Portland
After last winter’s successful MMMicrofestival, REDEFINE magazine returns to Holocene to bring you another evening of bounds-pushing cross-disciplinary performances.
INTUITIVE NAVIGATION invites like-minded performers from Portland and Seattle to transform the atmosphere of Holocene into a hypnotic, self-reflective zone. Five bands will showcase the spectrum of possibility found in psychedelic music while focusing on one central goal: to unite concertgoers in a similar consciousness of meditative bliss.
Bands will pair up with at least one dancer and one visual artist for costumed performances which celebrate the act of ritual — a mode of expression as symbolically cathartic as it is aesthetically pleasant. Drawing inspiration from philosophers of mythology such as Joseph Campbell, C.G. Jung, and Alan Watts, performers will explore the ways in which decisive physical actions, when imbued with the intentions of their authors, can become healing and transcendent acts.
Join us as we revel in the godlike vision of artists and delight in their peculiar magic.
