DAEMONS & PSYCHOPOMPS is a live Performance/Video/Music event inspired
by the myth of Persephone.  In the Location One gallery space, Ned
Rothenberg and Ikue Mori will play live improvised music, while four
large projections on the walls of the gallery will show the work created
by video artists in NYC and Amsterdam, connected over the internet via
collaborative software. The video artists will manipulate the images of
actors in masks, performing in the project room of the gallery, and
images captured prior to the live event. Additionally, the musicians
will affect certain aspects of the images through the music they play.
This entire event will be streamed live on the Location One website.

Please join us in the gallery or online at www.location1.org for this
unique and exciting event.

According to myth, Persephone, maiden goddess and daughter of earth
goddess Demeter, is captured by Hades and forced to live in the
Underworld with him as his consort and queen. Demeter, enraged and
grief-stricken over the abduction of her daughter, allows everything on
earth to die. To help gain Persephone's release, she appeals to several
of the male gods; they comply and Hades is forced to release Persephone.
However, while living in the Underworld, Persephone has eaten seeds of
the pomegranate (food of the dead), and she is forced by cosmic law to
return to the Hades for a portion of each year, thus creating vegetative
cycles and seasons.

In this re-imagining of the myth, Persephone may or may not be a willing
participant in her own abduction. The night before she must return to
Demeter, Hades throws a festive farewell party in his queen's honor and
the partygoers feast on pomegranate seeds which may or may not be
hallucinogenic. A hedonistic Bacchanalian fest ensues as revelers
celebrate Persephone's last night. Hangovers abound as Demeter comes to
claim her daughter.
