A Vigil. // information

An intervention marking the inauguration of #ashtag. – The [Futuristic] Protest Faith Movement,  at 'Urban Dialogues’, Red Gallery, Old Street, London's East End, 1 October 2013. 

Performers invited members of the public to take part in a candlelight vigil. These participants knelled and lit a candle before (unidentified) portraits of protesters (part of the Icons. series). They were then inaugurated into #ashtag. through a ritual involving the tying of a delicate textile ribbon around their little finger. No explanation was given. No unscripted communication was allowed.

Permitted communication (performers' script) was restricted to the following: 'Open Space', 'Open Heart', 'Be Still', 'Reflect', 'Feel Secure', 'Be Loved', 'Light a Candle', 'Pray'.
