PRIMUS EROTICA - A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS STORY
To be screened at The Gershwin Hotel with Neke Carson on June 23rd 2009
– Ode to Ishtar and Dionysus
a film by Suzette Gemzøe and Thomas Seest, Transcendens Dilettante, Copenhagen 2009
Primus Erotica is a celebration of the forces of love and sexuality represented by two major gods Ishtar and Dionysus. Before Christianity, there were temples and rites for these matters, but Christianity transformed the gods into witches with major consequences for our emotional life. Playing with fire is a natural ingredient in all spiritual rites and has always been considered a dangerous act.
Three feet, three candles
8 edged star
"We have seen the new Lars Von Trier film; Anti Christ, and felt a need to outlive a symbolic spiritual rite, free from Christian interpretation - we are not Christian, nor anti-Christian, we are dealing with matters that concern 5.000 years of human civilization".
Recipe (for two persons)
sugar and cinnamon
primus cooker and white spirit
(add cigarettes and wine according to temperament and style)
Gently peel apples, preferably in one long peel, until naked. remove
the core and cut the apples in half, horizontally so that a star
appears on each half. expose the apples to heat and fire, until dark
and soft and consume them with alcohol.
thus ingesting an ancient love potion and redirecting your senses
with the drug of alcohol you will both synchronously enter the
ever persisting realm of sexual energy, mutual desire and quiet,
weightless ecstasy. here Ishtar rules alongside Dionysus, forever
nursing an eight pointed star of fire that will eat you up, possess your bodies, liberate your senses, purify your minds and enable unified transcending energy.
