Witch Please: SHAME

— The Cube
An occult posthuman ritual performance party
price: Headfirst Tickets


before pride comes shame: that mirrored terror of ourselves. for too long we suffered as our gaze was brought forever back onto that which is forbidden. but without our shame we can never find ourselves, our people. those who will drink the pus that oozes from our boils, lick the gangrene from our wounds and pick the nits from our fur. let us follow the trail of blood into the forest and be healed. let us shine a light into our darkest corners and make out with what we find there. let's welcome our most vulnerable selves, gimp-masked and butt-plugged, fursuited and piss-stained, onto the dancefloor. shame is where you have been hiding. and SHAME is where you'll find yerself.

"at least for certain ('queer') people, shame is simply the first, and remains a permanent, structuring fact of identity" – eve sedgwick, tendencies (1993)


WITCH PLEASE is a party

WITCH PLEASE is a ritual action

WITCH PLEASE is an invitation

to be your best self, to be your worst nightmare

to unbridle your desires, queer your human frame and embrace the mystery

to dance with the archetypes and surrender to the fates and the furies

faux fur and face paint, lace and leather, infinite light bursting from vibrant matter

let's concoct a queer cosmology, a mythos for the pandrogynous

we are ecological beings, swimming not drowning in the waters of psyche

expect occult-flavoured happenings, ritual performance and cosmic disco. prepare to participate, and dress to distress.
