Gifts of the Spirit with Ron Athey and Sean Griffin

Co-produced by The Broad Museum and VOLUME. Associate Producer, Madeline Falcone. (photos by Ben Gibbs)

Gifts of the Spirit: Prophecy, Automatism and Discernment is Ron Athey's vision for an "automatic writing machine" brought to life in collaboration with the composer Sean Griffin as a performance/installation made up of 16 writers, six typists, a hypnotist, vocalists, and musicians. In this work, the artist "completes" his memoir ("Gifts of the Spirit") together in ecstatic communion with his collaborators. This living machine makes a tightly choreographed and scored visual spectacle bringing together writing, reading and listening into a layered performative action resulting in a collectively authored text and sound score.  

The roster of performers and audience members who came to witness this piece could be drawn as a complex interpersonal map...If this world is a trial, Gifts of the Spirit suggests that the only way we’ll survive it is together.

By evening’s end the crowd thinned to a couple hundred festivalgoers and Santa Paula natives dancing to another Latino band, Cambalache, here two worlds meeting not in a refuge but on Main Street.
