Katharsis

About

Go on a dreamlike journey of the mind in Maidenhead

A multi-sensorial show fusing music with dance and visual art. Be led into a dreamlike journey of the mind, a total experience intended for the purification of one's emotions. Katharsis is at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts on Sunday 28 October at 7.30pm. Tickets are £12.

Three musicians merge elements of soundtracks, soundscapes, ambient, ethnic and electronic music. A dancer performs choreographies and improvises, following the ever-changing music flow. Visual art projections on the background complete the hypnotic sensorial experience.

The purpose of Katharsis is to lead the audience into a dreamlike journey of the mind, a total experience intended for the purification of one's emotions. It is aimed at inducing an inner change that will result in renovation and restoration, just as it was conceived by Aristotle in the 4th century BC.

Katharsis is a Greek word meaning ‘cleansing’ or ‘purging’. It is defined as a beneficial transformation of painful emotions through absorbed contemplation of a powerfully moving work of art. Aristotle mentioned the effect of catharsis in his Poetics. He stated that the purpose of tragedy is to arouse ‘terror and pity’ and thereby effect the catharsis of these emotions.

Join Norden Farm for an evening of powerful art to begin your own katharsis.
