The current performance is based on the found drawings of the floor plan of the rite and notes where the shaman is quoted.
"Your life will be different in everything after the rite and remain the same in everything. You will form a strong unity with everyone who undergoes the chalk rite. With everyone who does not undergo the rite, you will lose your connection. You will be disconnected with all elements in your natural habitat. "
The O-stands for: reenactment chalk rite, originated from findings in the archive of the anonymous scientist that has been under the artistic care of Marieke Coppens since 2018. The archive shows that the scientist was one of the few Westerners to be part of this ceremony.
Marieke Coppens reconstructs the chalk rite from 20 to 23 February in collaboration with the circular Kunst kapel by architect Lau Peters. Make sure your loved ones come along so you don't miss the connection with them in the future.
