Fetish Doll Theatre
On Wednesday, June 10th, Fishbon Event Lab operatives gathered at the Pescadrome for an evening of fetish madness. Not the kind you think, this was a celebration of objects anthropologists have identified as "fetish objects." By this they mean objects that their makers have imbued with special intention. Jill began the evening with an overview of dolls from traditional cultures that were crafted to carry emotional and spiritual content. For the rest of the evening, operatives used the supplied materials to create their own "fetish dolls." In two weeks, the dolls will become actors in spontaneous doll dramas to be incorporated in future events.
