Many moons ago, on a special day in May, villagers would gather round their cow in anticipation, applauding and cheering every splat that fell from its rear.
Magick was happening.
The more pats that thudded on the earth, the more fruitful the village’s crops would be that year.
Artist and composer Ergo Phizmiz takes us on a multimedia family disco adventure into the wild and wonderful medieval magick rituals of England and Europe. With music, masks, projections, massive heads, and puppetry, accompanied by lots of dancing to modern pop hits and nostalgic novelties.
A Kids Disco Adventure at Bristol City Museum by Qu Junktions. An event for Museums at Night. Presented in conjunction with Jeremy Deller’s English Magic exhibition at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery.
