About the event

Luca Guadagnino's 2018 film Suspiria (a remake of Dario Argento’s 1977 giallo classic of the same name), is a deeply sensual exploration of the Sorcerous Body. Through the language of dance, the film, charged with Damien Jalet’s evocative choreography, showcases a connection between physicality and will that lends itself to a distinctly Martial analysis. This lecture dissects Suspiria’s stylized portrayal of ritualized movement and seeks to translate it (at least in essence) into a language of applied spirit work rooted in the mysteries of bone, blood, and sweat.

This ticket also includes access to the panel discussion on 4/27/24 at 7pm.

About the Presenter:

David Davis is the Chief Dirt Whisperer of Porous Palms, the platform through which he shares his interdisciplinary work. He is a Mystic, Folk Sorcerer, Cartomancer, Educator, Writer, and Artist based in Ypsilanti, MI. As an eclectic occultist whose practice spans a wide range of traditions from Medieval and Early Modern Planetary Magic to African American Hoodoo, his work is founded on the principles of Animism and the ethical exchange of cultural elements. At its core, David’s work is a celebratory exploration of identity and place, and the ways they inform our most essential experiences as human beings. This mixture of influences manifests as a diverse and ever-evolving expression of divinity, language, and ritual, resting at the borders of personal and communal realities.
