About the event

In preparation for the soon to be released 'Procession of the Night Theatre: An Exposition on the Lunar Stations' (upcoming Revelore Press 2024), I will discuss the ongoing narrative tradition of Alf Layla wa Layla (1001 Nights) and the magic, lore, and potency therein. Though the Nights form a large corpus of diverse story spanning the cultural spectrum, we find repetitive magical themes in relation to the jinn, dream, astral-travel, and sorcery. This class will explore these same themes and how they are still both relevant and operant in our contemporary moment.

About the Presenter:

J.M. Hamade (starnightdwell) (he/they) is an interdisciplinary artist, diviner, writer and educator residing in New York City. Focusing on the aesthetics of esoterica and the occult, they’re work bridges contemporary artistic practice with archaic forms of knowing. Various species of ‘image magic,’ both general and historical, are explored through like-practices of astrology, star-lore collecting, and observation of celestial phenomena. Similarly, the investigation and experimental application of talismanic art forms is at the forefront of their work.  Possessing a keen interest in craft, Hamade has apprenticed in the ways of butchery, the funerary arts, and most recently, the art of floristry. Passionate about both the printed word, they have published both writing and illustration with Hadean Press, The Mountain Astrologer, and Revelore Press. Hamade has received a BA focused in Printmaking from San Francisco State University. They are currently an MFA candidate at the City College of New York.
