‘To navigate, in a genuine way, in the unknown necessitates an attitude of daring, not one of recklessness (movements generated from the Magical Passes of Carlos Castaneda)’ (2009) by Joachim Koester

Through the choreography of drawings and bodily movements, Koester traces methods intended to access or express physical sensation beyond cognition. In an ambiguous dark space, a mime performs the exercises described by the infamous anthropologist Carlos Casteneda in his 1998 book Magical Passes. According to Casteneda, these were secret shamanic gestures meant to enhance one’s ability to navigate “the dark sea of awareness”.
