Tortilla Oracle

Tortilla Oracle is a participatory performance based on ancient Mayan and Aztec shamanic forms of divination brought into contemporary form. The performance involves ritual, sacred space, intuition, and a transaction of give and take between the artist and the participants. I read people’s tortillas like one might read tarot cards or tea leaves.
