6.00 pm: Performance – ‘By the Mandate of Heaven-Interactive audio visual performance’ presented by Catherine Meeson. A devised play in 3 Acts by Catherine Meeson. It is a spiritual, philosophical, environmental, social commentary that looks at and critiques our current civilizations modus operandi- through interactive audience address and audio visual performance method.
It is a timely message, a plea for and on behalf of all souls including the earth herself. Infused with the echo and essence of timeless wisdoms and the vision of life today, The Mandate of Heaven calls on the will of the people to act. It reflects on the ethics of human dominance, governance and ownership, the economic imperative, worth and the foundations for life. It speaks for the community of life from the perspective of the intercessionary principle. It challenges current models in light of universal interspecies ethics and directly prompts persons to contemplation and action. It proposes future karma and the need to reassess the founding structures upon which our civilization stands. It calls to account. It asks the participant to contemplate many things. It is an intercession, a point of departure to a future as yet unwritten.
