Jewlia Eisenberg & Charming Hostess
The Bowls Project: Secrets of the Apocalyptic Intimate
FREE (access on 3rd at Mission)
This interactive sound sculpture/immersive performance installation is an international collaboration by visionary Bay Area composer, Jewlia Eisenberg, with her ensemble, Charming Hostess. An ecstatic investigation of sex, magic and secret desires, The Bowls Project is inspired by Babylonian Jewish women’s amulets known as “demon bowls.” Housed within a stunning double-vaulted masonry dome created by celebrated architect Michael Ramage and featuring videography by multi-media artist Shezad Dawood, The Bowls Project creates an intimate, powerful and satisfying intersection between the ancient and modern worlds. The dome is a private place to share secrets and public forum to hear live music on Thursdays, participate in rituals on Fridays and encounter embodied text on Sundays. Come and be welcome!
