  • Originally meaning “inhabited” and ultimately “cared for”, the Latin word cultus was embodied in ceremony and ecstatic adoration. Beyond passive devotion, cultus implies the necessity for active worship, the “cultivation” necessary to give the divine its due. Many cultures identify a pattern of ceremonial behavior within a framework of spatial and temporal coordinates elected as sacred, erecting shrines for recurring rituals accessible solely to those sorted out by the wardens of the temple. Continued social tensions and discrimination require the repeated periodic release from established normativities found in catharsis; a carnival of subversions aimed at bringing the world as it is and how it should be together. Here, existence takes on a different light; new and very old meanings gather in the air. Consciousness expands. Adorned in colorful feathers and glittery makeup, celebrants shout “We must not just liberate our desires but make ourselves infinitely more susceptible to pleasure!” as they ascend to exhilarating heights. Gesticulating flagellants in leather chokers ready for the Great Rite swirl to sparkling vocals. Burning effigies illuminate black robes marching to four/four beats as sacred vestals in industrial sanctuaries invoke the spirit that levitates over the priestess behind the altar. Join us in communion! Sacrifice your ego and your sense of reality. Confess your sins in crowded stalls. Share your offerings. Choose ascetics, your personal agenda, your prayers and your saints. Choose your Sunday best, even if it’s Friday night. Choose your own corner to get lost in the blinding lights while stuffing sacramental hosts into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all. Choose your path. Choose a future. Choose your cult and be healed!
