Magic Mandorla at Pilgrim Mors

magicmandorla-18

Participants on the Pentecost pilgrimage on the North Danish island Mors will experience the Magic Mandorla performance when they reach Årbæk Mølle in the afternoon on Friday, May 25. EVERYONE is welcome to join, you just have to head towards the beach in the end of Årbækmøllevej by Ørding on Mors.

Anja Korsgaard in 2017 co-created the Magic Mandorla performance along with visual artist Andrew Zealey and dancer Rikke Steen Mapstone for the Culture Summit 2017, and it is the same group of performers who will be at it for Pilgrim Mors. Artist Malene Bang Zealey will further participate as a documentarist.

Anja explains:

“The point of departure is the WW2 bunkers of the West Coast but the energy of the Mandorla remains relevant in relation to the contrasts and conflicts that are part of our time and are constantly messing with our balance and in demand of attention.

Magic Mandorla – Where We Create is a performance, a journey, a dream, a Jungian exploration of the Prima Materia.”

Everyone is welcome, the Magic Mandorla is not exclusive to pilgrims. The time of the arrival of the wanderers to Ørding determines the start time, probably around 16 o’clock. The full pilgrimage with overnight stays is fully booked, but you can still join individual days.

“The point of departure is the WW2 bunkers of the West Coast but the energy of the Mandorla remains relevant in relation to the contrasts and conflicts that are part of our time and are constantly messing with our balance and in demand of attention.

”No (wo)man is an island”, nothing comes out of nothing. Creative urges will never transform or materialize without action. We have to believe, to dare, to sacrifice a bit of heart and soul, to be vulnerable, brave, helpless, reach out, open up and let in.

Mandorla – Where We Create pans out over three days, where the pieces of the puzzle are molded, shaped, planted and finally manifesting in a performance, a journey, a dream, a Jungian exploration of the Prima Materia.”

The main theme for The Cultural Summit 2017 is To open up
We are looking forward to it.
