Returning to England for the first time since his phenomenal performance at the Roundhouse in 2014, Janaka Stucky will be flying in from the United States to celebrate the launch of his new book, Ascend Ascend. Published in the UK by the leading independent publisher for esotericism and magic in visual culture, Fulgur Press, this deluxe, limited edition of Ascend Ascend also features seven beautiful illustrations by the American fine artist, K Lenore Siner—who is also flying in for the event. For one night only, Janaka will be presenting this new work in its entirety as an immersive, multidisciplinary performance to create a visceral interpretation of ritual that invokes mythography across cultural and corporeal boundaries.
Joining Janaka in the night’s performances will be London-based poet, Scarlett Sabet, whose latest book of poems,Camille, launched at Mortimer House back in March of 2019. Copies ofAscend Ascendwill also be on-hand, each signed and numbered by both Janaka and K.
