The Golden Dome School performs "The Resurrection of Care" ritual each year - a ceremonial performance that invites Los Angeles artists to respond to our culture’s violence, ecocide, caustic hierarchies, and exploitative capitalism.
The notorious Bohemian Club, an ultra-exclusive all-male club, has membership that includes business leaders, government officials, former US presidents, military elite, bankers, media executives, and other men in positions of power. Political and business deals are developed at the Club’s annual summer gathering at Bohemian Grove in Monte Rio, CA.
Each year, members of the club stage the 135-year old "Cremation of Care" ceremony, in which the body of “Care” is symbolically cremated and banished from Bohemian Grove, paving the way for drunken celebration, male bonding, capitalistic scheming, warmongering, and – according to many reports – excessive public urination.
In response, the Golden Dome School developed "The Resurrection of Care", an annual ritualistic play performed by Golden Dome artists. The play narrates the resurrection of the cremated body of caring. Each year we re-instate our vow to care for ourselves and all of the people, plants, animals, water, earth, air, and spirits that are threatened with annihilation by unfettered greed and exploitation.
We will be meeting at the Lady of the Lake Statue in Echo Park. The ceremony starts at 6:30 PM sharp.
