Bethany sat around this August atoning the BAD deeds of anyone who cared to be absolved. This performance is in development and will be performed again later this month and at This is Not Art Festival in early October.

“The modern hero, the modern individual who dares to heed the call and seek the mansion of that presence with whom it is our whole destiny to be atoned, cannot, indeed must not, wait for his community to cast off its slough of pride, fear, rationalized avarice, and sanctified misunderstanding. “Live,” Nietzsche says, “as though the day were here.” It is not society that is to guide and save the creative hero, but precisely the reverse. And so every one of us shares the supreme ordeal-carries the cross of the redeemer – not in the bright moments of his tribe’s great victories, but in the silences of his personal despair.”

Joseph Campbell, The Hero With a Thousand Faces
