about

As described by Aleister Crowley, Choronzon (pronounced Kō-rōn-zōn) is an ancient demon that destroys the ego and is the last great obstacle in the Abyss between the adept and enlightenment. More generally it represents dispersion, corruption, impotence, malice, restriction, and death. I was fascinated by the idea of the demon trying to become something when it is nothing – a being that is not actually a being but craves to be, despite knowing that it never can be, and its constant effort to exist anyway. In Choronzon: Dweller of the Abyss, I hope to abstractly represent the demon trying to assert itself, but failing. The performers are required to shout “I AM I” in various forms at key moments. These build up to unison moments of false assertion, which are quickly dispersed again. Commissioned by, Soundry.
