The Bowls Project

Dear Friends,

Get apocalyptic with Charming Hostess! Based on inscriptions from Babylonian Jewish amulets known as “demon bowls,” The Bowls Project sings of sex, ritual and secrets of the home. Come hear it live in a rare NY appearance!

Demon bowls were common home-protecting amulets for women in late-antique Babylon. Their texts deal with mysticism and magic, angels and demons, and the joys of love, sex, and exorcism. These bowls inhabit the world of the “apocalyptic intimate”–a spirit-rich environment where the vast supernatural realm intersects the tiny domestic sphere. They explore domestic secrets in unexpected ways, suggesting a world that is strange and inspiring. Weaving together these amulet texts with the American apocalyptic music tradition,this intimate iteration of Charming Hostess will include Marika Hughes (Bottom Heavy, Two Foot Yard) Ganda Suthivarakom (Cibo Matto, David Byrne) and Brandon Seabrook (Seabrook Power Plant, Ben Allison).
