Ritual, Astrology & Performance

Please join us for an Astrology for Artists Event @ Chisenhale Dance Space

Tickets: £25 * * purchase in advance essential * * Tickets: £15 for Chisenhale Dance Space Artists

By sharing her artistic and astrological practices Madeleine will establish the connections between performance, astrology and how they relate to ritual, enchantment, defamiliarization, the sacred and most important an experience of a liminal state.

Being an artist is a journey that connects us with who we are, the same as astrology which is a system in constant movement and which show us the potential of who we can become.

When we create work we are expanding our mind, our physique, our emotions, we
are finding new ways of communicating and thinking about ourselves, we are in some way facing the unknown, meaning a transitional experience that takes us creatively from one order to another. This workshop is an exploration to leave the door open to the unknown - that’s where the most important things come from, where you yourself come from and where you’ll go.

As Rebecca Solnit wrote in The Field Guide of Getting Lost‘I Have Lost Myself Though I Know Where I Am’. After reading her book I kept asking myself - How can we assert ourselves while being lost? Or when we perform? Where does that assertiveness come from?

The workshop will primarily feature a combination of performance acts and activities, astrological understanding focusing on Neptune, the planet that rules Pisces, each participant will be given an astrological task during the workshop and we’ll be doing some physical and sensorial exercises to awaken the body, bringing dynamism and aiming to question the transformative power of performance.


Madeleine’s practice focuses on the body’s relationship to identity, belonging and presence; creating intimate interdisciplinary performances that question our perception of corporeality. Encounters with a diversity of cultures and spiritual practices throughout her life and practice have been a strong influence on her ongoing artistic research. She studied Astrology at CASA 11 in Argentina and at the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London.

In advance of the workshop, Madeleine will read and draw up each participating artist’s astrological natal chart, showing what the sky looked like at the exact moment of their birth.
