        A short selection of shots from director Derrick Ryan Claude Mitchell's presentation of Christopher Burden's SHOOT, Nearly Nearly Invisible and Paradisiacal Rites. SHOOT was re-performed at Dawn on May 19th. Mitchell was shot with a .22 caliber rifle, before walking 10 miles to Pioneer Square where he performed Nearly Nearly Invisible. Nearly Nearly Invisible consisted of a ritual leeching and wine drinking process, supported by a series of bands in Seattle's historic Pioneer Square. Mitchell then walked 5 miles to On The Boards where his opera Paradisiacal Rites was finishing its United States Premiere.

                    A series of one minute videos shot by Timothy Rysdyke documenting piece in Saint Genet's Transports of Delirium. This piece was produced in an abandoned building that once was the Prestigious Lawrimore Project in the Fall MMXI. Saint Genet began the ritual within the shell of what was once the Lawrimore Project. Creating ephemeral images, inciting impossible poetic actions from exhausted and drug-induced performers, and slowly creating and recreating sacred space; methodically revealing beautiful and disturbing images of sexual power and abjection stretched to the breaking point of sustainability. It was said that “God only knows what is going on in that building, or perhaps the Devil knows better.” This was the act of deflowering, presented symbolically through the performer’s own initiative. Concept, Writing, Direction: Derrick Ryan Claude Mitchell Saint Genet

                      A series of one minute videos shot by audience member Timothy Rysdyke of the final piece in the series: Transports of Delirium. As the final Declaration of Aesthetic, Saint Genet expanded the final moments of The People's Temple in Jonestown, Guyana. A chilling, glacial narrative was presented through a 70 lb. pile of flowers, the haunting of a hidden and beautiful voice, a pool of blood, a pool of honey, mounds of gold-leafed performers, the dead and buried, the resurrected, and piles and piles of falling ash. This symbolic Poetic Gesture was the final act of willing, forcing the ascendancy of the Saint.
