About the Event
Juan Bethancurth's deck for oracular improvisation: Thirty-three[x]2 places the performers as a medium with an 'oracular power', defined as the power to shape perceptions into actions. The deck is a series of sixty-six cards divided capriciously into two groups, 33 in the left pocket and 33 in the right. This distribution is proposed as an open game between polarities to create combinations between one side and the other and to open up possibilities that will show us what dwells in between.
