ROOTS IN THE RUINS
TRANSFORMATIVE PRACTICES FOR FUTURE FLOURISHING
a series of participatory performances, discussions and workshops
in a wild garden in Berlin Alt-Hohenschönhausen
Rites of Gratitude: Mooncakes, Mildew, Planetary Momentum
A harvest festival workshop with Lucy Powell& Ella Ziegler
All day Sunday 1 October starting at 11am
The sapere behind the name homo sapiens points to the origins of wisdom as the ability to taste, take in and absorb. This is very different to simply consuming and can be a longterm source of nourishment perhaps especially in uncertain times.
In this workshop we will spend the day together immersing ourselves fully in elaborate preparations for Erntedankfest, festival of gratitude, truly taking in life’s gifts. We will offer sacrifices to the god of mildew, summon and ingest our ancestors, engage in reciprocal acts of beautifaction, actually use the fresh pasta maker bought during the pandemic, offer our nitrogen to the plants, let the rice boil over, try out medieval ironing techniques and feast under the stars.
Join us in weaving together traditional and newly interpreted rituals – please wear fruity-coloured clothing and bring a small sharp knife.
