An interactive art-magick experience for 69 hardcore Seekers: a pilgrimage by coach from the Cerne Abbas Giant in UK to the centre of CERN in Switzerland. Their mission: to re-set the world by performing a ritual at the heart of The Gnothing that would Immanentised the Eschaton. The Mycelium provided the structure, strategic planning, and logistics… the participants co-created the rest of the experience for themselves. 20-25th April 2019.
This play is an act of art-magick. In 1976 Ken Campbell staged Robert Anton Wilson’s novel Illuminatus portraying a world in which every known conspiracy theory was true. Wilson then wrote the non-fiction book Cosmic Trigger to explain what had happened to him as a result. Daisy Campbell adapted it in homage to the mind-expanding philosophy of Wilson and to her father & his production of Illuminatus. Last performed during May 2017 in London.
This gathering of Seekers was a celebration of all things Robert Anton Wilson. It was a place of self-learning; a palace of hedonistic joys; a chapel of perils; a meeting of minds (blown just right). It ran during the opening weekend of Cosmic Trigger Play with the aim of re-igniting an aspect of the counterculture ecology. 23rd November 2014, Camp & Furnace, Liverpool.
From the outset of planning Cosmic Trigger we fixed the opening to be in Liverpool on 23rd November 2014, but we needed to find out whether Liverpool was ready. So we produced our very first event to find out… and in the process met an amazing network of Seekers. 23rd February 2014, The Kazimier Club, Liverpool.
