From the unknown into the unknown

Performance, 20 minutes, 2011

The protagonist of this performance is Pastor Emmanuel Adeshina Jayeola, who normally works in a Pentecostal church in Amsterdam Zuidoost. The performance consists of two parts: an exorcism and a sermon.

The exorcism features a live video feed and several video and sound effects that are created by us. The performance is quite intense: the Pastor is in a state of trance, speaking in tongues and has physical contact with the audience members.

The sermon is written by the Pastor in collaboration with us. It treats the subjects of a spiritual reality and how spirits and demons influence our lives. He also explains that the most fundamental of questions – that of the meaning of life – can be answered by religion alone.

Organized with the co-operation of Lost & Found
