Act IV: Sacred History
As the final Declaration of Aesthetic, Saint Genet expanded the final moments of The People’s Temple in Jonestown, Guyana. A chilling, glacial narrative was presented through a 70 lb. pile of flowers, a hidden and beautiful voice, a circle of blood, a circle of honey, mounds of gold-leafed performers, the dead and buried, the resurrected, and piles and piles of falling ash.
Music composed by:
Salo, Gerek Jon Druss, and Jeff Houston.
This was a manifestation of the recognition of evil, and created the psychological condition of the original crisis.
